Make the most of your late summer garden with Eupatorium 'Baby Joe', and enjoy as this little gem throws out a fresh burst of colour through August and September. This easy-to-grow plant likes to soak up every bit of the late summer sun, exploding into a profusion of frizzy purple flower clusters in August and extending the season of colour right through those golden late-summer and autumn weeks. This variety is more compact than other Eupatorium. Eventually, it’ll form a sturdy, dense clump, but it won’t get overly tall which is useful for narrower spaces.

Bees and other pollinators love the nectar-rich flowers of Eupatorium—the late flowering time provides an essential food source so bees can stock up before autumn sets in. If you have a heavy, moisture-retentive or clay soil, unfussy Eupatorium dubium 'Baby Joe' copes well. Along with the flowers, the leaves and stems will also fill their space with bronze and mauve hues, making a great contrast for neighbouring plants. Try combining Eupatorium with other late-summer beauties like Rudbeckia, Echinacea and Sedum to create your own late-summer spectacle!
