Chocolate Joe Pye. One of my favorite plants. The white fall Flowers are insignificant looking so to me it's at it's prime now. It's a beautiful accent but there's a thug in front of it this year so I can't show it to you properly 💚💜💚 8.7.19 #joepyeweed #chocolate-joepye #chocolate-eupatorium #eupatorium

Nice, tall, dark plant in summer. Foliage has lightened now. Even with our long hot summer the white flowers are just coming on. 10.11.18 very blurry as it's windy out. *45f

Isn't it nice to find something you already own to fill in an empty spot? It's much more fun than building gardens. I put the #chocolatejoepyeweed here. I think it's a go. #darkfoliage #hemp #agrimony

This is another Joe Pye. I just read this one might want more shade, but it's doing good here in full sun. It's about 4 ft tall but will get a little taller. Getting ready to bloom. #joepyeweed #chocolatejoepye #joepyeinfo

Oh Laura! I really don't have a secret!😂 All I do is try (and I do mean try! Cuz I'm always moving something!) To put tallest in the back down to shortest in front, you can only go by tags and so many of them are wrong! I just plant stuff I like and try not to get to much of the same color all together 🤔 that's pretty much it!!💘😍

Joe Pye weed # 3 for us. #chocolatejoepyeweed I think I'm hooked on Joe Pye. It is the perfect plant for our climate. Will expand quite rapidly into a wide and tall perennial plant. This one got a little hot in the car yesterday. Has a few dry leaves. But otherwise should do good.

Hi Laura, in the U.K. this is also called white snakeroot but is a perennial not a shrub. It's related to Joe Pye Weed but isn't the same plant apparently...

I got that wrong Jacqueline. Its not a shrub, its a perennial plant. I meant to go back and correct it while still typing post 😱and didn't. My 'sunset western garden book' tells me the #whitesnakeroot and this are one in the same, just another color. Very poisonous and a bee magnet @awomanonabike
