Joe Pye Weed

I bought this plant last year and it only reached about 4 feet tall. This year, however, it's about 9 feet tall and is a beautiful, architectural piece in the middle of the garden planting bed. It broke dormancy quite late in the spring, but once it got going there was no stopping it - it is HUGE! The bees love the blooms, and if I recall correctly, they seem to last a long time. I also have another Chocolate Eupatorium, which has lovely white blossoms, but blooms later than this one.
