Joe-Pye Weed

I love Joe-Pye Weed. It attracts birds, butterflies, bees and other insects. It is currently blooming along the fringes of bogs, marshes, and other wetland areas.

And with a heavenly fragrance I couldn't imagine how it came to be called Joe-Pye Weed. According to Wikipedia the name comes from a Native American by the name of Joe Pye who used the plant to heal people.

Joe-Pye Weed is a native wildflower.
