Joe-Pye Weed

Joe-Pye Weed

Native to Eastern North America, Joe-Pye weed – Eutrochium purpureum – grows everywhere in Southern Ontario. Named after an Indian healer from New England, Joe Pye used this plant to treat various ailments leading to people naming it after him. This is a view at Medway Creek where it grows profusely.
