This is the French version of American Joe Pye weed. Like it's American cousin, it is a stalwart, 3- to 4-foot tall perennial that is topped with large heads of silvery pink flowers in late summer. It is irresistable to butterflies and combines wonderfully with grasses.
Hemp-leaf Joe Pye weed (Eupatorium cannabinum
) prefers damp to wet, heavy soils and full sun to part shade. Plant in spring through early fall.
I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central
. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
