Eutrochium dubium

Coastal plain joe-pye weed

Eutrochium dubium is a flowering plant native to the coastal plain and piedmont of the southeast, down through Georgia. It is predominantly found in moist to wet sites, and grows well in full sun or part shade. This plant typically gets around three feet tall during the growing season, but dies back completely in the winter. Leaving dormant stems up until spring provides necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Large clusters of small pink flowers bloom in the summer and attract many pollinators. Birds eat the seeds in the fall and winter. This is a host plant for a few native butterfly species. Eutrochium dubium works well as a specimen plant in a yard or rain garden, in stormwater ponds, or for restoration projects.
