Joe Pye Weed. Start from seeds. 3.5.15
Joe Pye Weeds to stratify. 3.5.15
I read that Joe Pye Weed seeds need to be stratified. I bought the seeds via mail order. This plant is considered an excellent bee and butterfly plant. I placed the seeds on damp paper towel, in zip-lock bag. They should be in fridge for 2 or 3 weeks, then planted. I have a few left. If there is a chance, I can plant those outside.
