The Butterfly Magnet Joe-Pye Weed
Not a weed at all, but a member of the “daisy” family, this amazing plant grows to be ten feet tall, and every August, produces thousands of small lavender pink flowers that attract every butterfly within a mile around. It is a perennial that grows in the same spot every spring.
Swallowtail Butterflys love the sweet nectar. I’ve counted thirty individuals feeding in one area.
