Chocolate Joe-Pye Weed
Eupatorium rugosum ‘Chocolate’
3-4 feet high x 2-3 feet wide
Full Sun to Part Shade
Joe-Pye Weed has a striking cousin in this creamy white cluster-flowered late summer to early fall bloomer. The bronze-purple foliage looks like chocolate in part sun to part shade and grows to 3 to 4 feet high (shorter when grown dry) by 2 to 3 feet wide. Ruth’s personal backyard garden includes a cluster of dry grown Chocolate Joe-Pye Weed.
