The proof is in the pudding...Joe Pye can't be beat!
Love your blog and your sense of humor!
It is a butterfly magnet!!Great shots, John...Cheers!Linda :o)
Love the title! I have been wanting to plant these..Great shots!.
Yours is gorgeous. We have it growing wild everywhere here so I thought I'd like to try it despite my DRY sandy soil. I stuck it by where the roof drains off. The plant is healthy, but lacking in any blossums.....even though it's in full bloom in the swamps down the road. HmmmmmmmmmIt is a magnet for the wildlife. Love it!
There's always action on the Joe-Pye, isn't there! It's by far the most popular plant according to the insects in my yard, I've never seen birds on mine though, that's cool. If you haven't already, you might want to try going out after dark with a flashlight and seeing who's on it then. I was shocked when I did, a whole new batch of characters comes out!
It looks great. The pruning worked? I'll have to try that next year. Maybe then the summer rainstorms won't send mine laying horizontal as much.
Beautiful photography of your Joe Pye and nature :)
Looks like something I should try in my garden! Beautiful photos!!
The bird was a nice surprise.
