Spotted Joe Pye Weed (Eutrochium maculatum)

A long list of native insects are supported by the flowers, leaves and stems of Joe Pye Weed, including moths, butterflies, and a wide-variety of bees. Its stems provide a good nesting habitat for many native bees over the winter. It’s also an attractive addition to stormwater and lakeshore planting, providing nutrient and pollutant treatment benefits.
