Plant Size Info

 

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.

Care & Planting Guide

After your plants have arrived:

The plants in this box have just spent a lot of time being jostled around in the dark and must be unboxed right away. Unpack the entire box, removing packaging material and plants. Remove any plastic covering the pot and/or soil surface and check if the soil is dry. Water anything that is dry or looks wilted. Any plants that have come unpotted during shipping can be replaced in their pots and their roots covered with soil.

Place plants in a cool, shaded spot out of direct sunlight for 24- 48 hours after unpacking them. This allows them a recovery and acclimation period before planting. If you must hold them longer, place them out of direct sunlight, wind, heat, and cold. Check daily for watering.

USDA Hardiness Zones

USDA Hardiness Zones Map

ZONE HARDINESS

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has devised a system to provide gardeners with a basic guide to plant hardiness – how much winter cold a plant can withstand. The Hardiness Zone Map system divides the United States and Canada into numbered zones based on lowest average winter temperature. Even within a zone, different micro-climates exist, such as large urban areas which may be warmer or land situated at different elevations.

WHAT EFFECTS PLANT HARDINESS

The Hardiness Zone Map is a valuable tool but it is not foolproof. There are a variety of factors that can influence the hardiness of a given plant in a garden. These factors include: soil type, drainage, snow cover, exposure to wind, winter, rainfall (or lack of), as well as fluctuations in temperature.

It died. I typically have a green thumb but this one gave it up for no apparent reason.

Ordered & planted in July; will be blooming in a few days!

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.

Great plants!

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.
