Joe Pye (Eutrochium maculatum) is a good replacement for the invasive species, Butterfly Bush (Budleia). Joe Pye is a very tall plant, up to 6' in the best sun/soil conditions, but strong stems support the flowering plant so it rarely needs to be staked. These attractive stems are almost the same color as the dusty rose-colored flowers, which will bloom for many weeks in July and August, becoming absolute magnets for dozens of species of butterflies. Also called Spotted Joe Pye it is best planted in full to almost-full sun and rich, moist soils. It will spread so should be planted with caution in small landscape situations.
