Re: Serendipity

What ever it is, you must save the seeds. You may have a new variety.
I've never see white Joe Pye. I also have it growing in my gardens and
love it.

Subject: [CHAT] Serendipity 

As you all know, I'm not a very neat gardener. I let things grow 
where they want to, if I don't need the space for something else. 
Especially wild flowers that some people call weeds, like my 
beloved milkweeds. Another favorite that I let place itself is 
Joe Pye weed, and I have had a handsome one in the front bed 
this season. Well, I thought I had another coming along in a 
crack in the front steps. Usually I have Columbine there in the 
spring, and I thought I would let this grow until it got too big. 
As the season advanced it didn't get as big as Joe Pye usually 
does, but I thought it was probably because of the limited space 
it was growing in - really just a crack. Also, it didn't bloom as 
soon as the Joe Pye in the bed, but I told myself that it was 
because it was in more shade. Well, it has finally bloomed, 
very heavily, and it is white! What do I have? and where did it 
come from? I have looked in the wildflower books, and online, 
but nothing matches. It definitely is not Boneset, which is a 
white flower in the same family. It's foliage and growth habit 
is much like the blue Eupatorium coelestinum (some people 
call it perennial Ageratum, which it it not) that I have a nice 
bed of. The bloom is much the same, too, but it is bright 
white. Any ideas?
