Description

Eupatorium dubium 'Little Pye' is a miniature Joe Pye perfect for small gardens or containers. Only 10-12" tall, instead of 5' like most Joy Pyes, it features the same dusky pink flowers so attractive to butterflies and bees. With blooms from July well into fall, and attractive seed heads in winter, 'Little Pye' offers garden interest for much of the year. 

'Little Pye' is easily grown in full sun to light shade in average soil with consistent moisture. It is a cultivated variety of Eupatorium dubium, a native of Eastern North America, found primarily along riverbanks, moist thickets, and sandy swamps.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
