Joe-Pye Weed, Eutrochium purpureum can be found in the Meadow Garden at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. This is one of our favorite travel destinations. 

 

Subhash Sharma These fresh looking 'Joe-Pye weeds'  (Eutrochium species) come from a Genus of about 42 species of the sunflower family with purple or white-flowered plants. They are named after Joe Pye 
(Jopi in the Native tongue), an Indian healer from New England, used E. purpureum to treat a variety of ailments like the kidney stones and urinary tract ailments which led to the name Joe-Pye weed for these plants. Folklore says that Joe Pye used this plant to cure fevers and also that American colonists used this plant to treat typhus outbreaks.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India who now lives in Ireland. He frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.
