Joe-Pye

This afternoon, my garden buddy Lynn from Sin City to Slaterville stopped by for some Joe-Pye weed (or as she prefers boneset) to plant in her ditch.

I’m more than happy to share. It’s not like it’s scarce around here. In fact, the plant defines this place with it’s wet soils along the wetland. I’ve got several cultivars planted around the place. But I’m fond of the wild…
