Many have discovered the curative aspects of Eupatorium, yet only two have lent it their names: Eupator, a King of Pontus, and an American Indian named Joe-Pye. We prescribe these undemanding perennials for whatever ails your garden. Some delegate this rather coarse and undeniably valiant member of the Asteraceae family to meadow gardens, but we’ve found that Eupatorium can provide balance and stability to formal situations as well. Best of all, butterflies love them!
This coveted, tall-standing cultivar is named for its enormous, nearly ball-shaped umbels and warm glowing tones. Characterized by a hushed, easy-to-meld hue, the arresting plum-purple panicles surmount lustrous, straight-backed red stems. Dark green whorls of dashing, large, pointy serrated leaves with burgundy midribs clothe ‘Glutball’s grand frame that can be staged in borders or meadows, and added to floral arrangements, while wielding a majestic presence well into fall.
Size: 6' 0" – 7' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
