Fast growing and invasive Pye Weed is a tough back of a deep border filled with vigorous perennials it seems to prefer a free draining soil that retains moisture. Growing well along fast growing Helenium, Monarda, Anthemis and Eryngiums a combination that has the added benefit of flowering from Summer lasting late into fall.
During hot Summers the large leaves often wilt as the plant struggles to maintain the water intake required to follow the burning suns rays, so planting in partial shade will keep the herbaceous perennial in good condition.
Day and night-time pollinators love Pye Weed, the large flower panicles often alive with a buzz of bees, butterflies that appear to swarm the flowers.
