Produces large headest of showy pink flowers. The foliage is interesting because it is whorled around the stem in groups of four. Being a Eupatorium it's an excellent butterfly magnet. I've seen three tiger swallowtails on one plant alone. This Joepye is better suited to Kansas climates that the typical Joepye sold in most nurserys.
