This more diminutive Joe Pye Weed is native to the eastern coastal plain and can be found in swamps, shores, and wet meadows.   Its beautiful pink-headed stems wave in the summer breeze and provide landing platforms attractive to butterflies and other insect pollinators. Eupatarium dubium is now called Eutrochium dubium by Virginia Flora.
