Joe Pye Weed (Eutrochium dubium 'Baby Joe') is a pollinator magnet and important nectar source for Monarchs and other butterflies. It is a key Monarch Way Station plant. In addition to its value to butterflies, Joe Pye Weed provides bees with nectar and also supports conservation biological control by attracting beneficial insects to the garden.
