Trumpetweed is a perennial native wildflower here in parts of Florida, a statuesque and impressive wildflower during its blooming season of summer and fall. Growing to 10 feet in height, Trumpetweed is found along roadsides and forest edges, as well as moist woodlands and wet meadows and marshes. it has an upright, hollow, reddish-purple stem with lance-shaped dark green leaves. Very large (up to 18" wide) flower clusters hold hundreds of mauve-pink fuzzy flowers, which are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.

This Hollow Joe-Pye-Weed is one of the common species that are very similar to each other, including the Sweet and the Spotted Joe-Pyes. This species has 4 to 7 leaflets whorled around the stem at each junction (node), though usually 6. The stems are hollow in cross section and are usually tinged with purple. It grows about 4 to 7 feet high. It grows in wet meadows and along water courses in nature from Maine to Iowa then southward from there into the deep South US. It is sold by some native plant nurseries.
