I live in Southern Minnesota 4b. I am currently really excited about my wetland gardens, my rain gardens, my mini orchard, and perennial vegetables.

Your Joe Pye Weed looks really pretty. The flower heads look grey. Has it finished blooming and this is the seed? I have Baby Joe Pye Weed and it blooms a mauve/pink colour. Seed heads turn a dark purple colour.

@gjones @alif @anges @cheyenne1barnett @cyndi thank you. I have had lots of them. I planted lots and lots of swamp milkweed. 20 years ago I used to get hundreds of them in the fall in my maple trees. It was quite the sight.

@KariSamuel @tinaaune @columbiariver thank you. This year has been a good year for monarchs. I have had several monarch roosts this fall. I like to stand under one and watch the monarchs fly around the tree.

I counted 6 monarchs flying around the joe pyeweed plus bumblebees. I went back after dark to catch some slimey slugs and there were many pretty moths that were at the joe pyeweed. I must plant more and more joe pyeweed, sweet joe pyeweed, boneset. Who does not like joe pyeweed?

@staciegokhan you will love this plant. It took 3 years to fully fill out and become 6'. If you have more shade you can try sweet joe pyeweed too.

@jaded88 thank you. Where I live is nice, but then comes winter. 4 long cold months seems to take a long time to pass. I do not like Minnesota winters much anymore.
