Eupatorium are one of those plants that fall into the ‘naturalistic’ category. They share the physical characteristics of native species, albeit transplanted to another country. They tend to have simple flowers rather than highly bred doubles, and the overall form gives the impression of a wild plant rather than an exotic.
Eupatorium excels as a conventional perennial and is invaluable for the late-summer border. They flower fairly late in the season and are a good replacement plant, filling the space left by early flowering species. They are splendid companions for other late perennials such as Echinacea, Rudbeckia and Helenium. Ornamental grasses also make for happy bedfellows. Eupatorium are also an extremely useful as a landscape plant, where there is a need to make a gentle transition from a highly gardened environment to the natural landscape beyond. It is a plant with a powerful presence that will add colour and form to the late-summer garden and will carry the interest through to autumn and beyond.

Details

Nomenclature:
The species name Eupatorium derives from the Greek name Mithridates Eupator, King of Pontus about 115BC who is said to have discovered an antidote to a commonly used poison in one of the species.
The species name maculatum means spotted, referring to purple splotches on the stems.
The sub-species name atropurpureum means ‘very dark purple’, The word ‘atro’ is a prefix conveying the sense of ‘blackish or very dark,’ and purpurum means the colour purple. It is often used in species names, as in atrocaeruleus, ‘dark blue’ or atrococcineus, ‘dark scarlet’
Eupatorium maculatum (Spotted Joe Pye weed) and Eupatorium purpureum (Sweet-Scented Joe-Pye weed) are similar to each other in character and often confused or treated interchangeably in the gardening world.
It is marketed in American as Eupatorium maculatum atropurpureum ‘Glow’

Position:
Eupatorium maculatum atropurpureum is a subspecies native eastern North America. In the wild it can be found in pastureland and at the edges of woodlands and streams. It thrives in garden soils that are reasonably fertile and not too dry. The plants are also useful for planting in damp areas, they are naturals near ponds, streams, and pools.
Eupatorium maculatum is a tall plant that needs a little space, when used in a border it is best located near the back. In good growing conditions plants may grow 120 to 150cm (4 to 5ft) in height and reach half as much across, but thanks to its strong stems, it does not need staking.

Cultivation:
Given that many species grow naturally in damp or wet habitats, the plants may need additional water in the hottest periods of the summer to avoid wilting. While normally sturdy-stemmed, plants may bow a bit under the weight of the large flower heads, especially after overhead irrigation or a heavy rainfall. Deadheading not only keeps plants looking neat after flowering but also deters self-sown seedlings.
Larger selections can be given the ‘Chelsea chop’ and cut back to 60cm (24in) or so in late spring or early summer to reduce their ultimate size. Plants that are cut back typically bloom at or near the regular time but the flower heads are usually a little smaller.
Division is necessary only when plants outgrow their location.

If you love Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium maculatum) but have too much shade, then you should select the Sweet Joe Pye Weed. They are almost identical plants, but one way to tell them apart is the fact that there are whorls of 4 or 5 leaves on green stems with purple spots only at the nodes.
