Sharon, I got so excited when you were describing the medical effects because it is so common here. Really, I was very disappointed that there are no real benefits medically. However, you are quite right about its place in the garden. Right now I have about 10 plants to plant in the back of borders. I winter sowed them. From now on, I will always have them. I did notice that Bluestone perennials has a more intense color available so the plant has entered the breeding level. I love your description of the old men in front of the post office and the quaint "watching Joe Pye grow" saying. I think I will be doing a lot of that- literally. Again, a most informational and entertaining article!

Thank you, Gloria, I am glad you enjoyed the article and happier to know that you have Joe Pye growing in your yard. I am sure you will enjoy it. I noticed the intense colors that have come to be, but still, I like the original old week.
I do a lot of "watching Joe Pye grow", too...sometimes that's a good thing.
