There are lots of wonderful Joe Pye weeds out there, but we selected 'Little Joe' because of its five-star performance in the Chicago Botanic Gardens plant evaluation. It earned its rating based on its fabulous flowering and outstanding resistance to powdery mildew; its tidy, compact stature is also a major asset since it can be grown in less space than conventional selections.
Look to 'Little Joe' here to sustain butterflies at the peak of the season - mid-summer through autumn.

The replacement plants were fine. Customer service was excellent.
I ordered two 'Little Joe' plants on 07/03/22 and received them quickly. They were a bit stressed due to the heat wave. After recovering in a cool indoor room I planted them in a planter. It is now 08/05/22, they have more than doubled in size and are covered with tiny buds. I except them to start blooming in the next few days.
Plants are coming up heathy and stating to bud.
The plants arrived looking very healthy! I was very impressed with the shipping container that they arrived in, keeping all of the plants protected. They went in the ground immediately and they are doing very well. I would definitely buy again from this company.
Plants arrived very healthy, wasn't expecting them to do much this year, boy was I wrong, they are budding and will be blooming in the next few weeks! They have tripled in size as well! Can't wait for fall to order more!
