Joe Pye Shrub - Lots of Late Blooms

This year, my Joe Pye Shrub (Eupatorium viburnoides) has really been blooming.

The clusters of flowers are made up of numerous tiny blossoms that are quite attractive when viewed close up.

It has provided plenty of late fall nectar for the insects that are still out and about in our warmer-than-usual temperatures.

The shrub itself likely needed one more shearing to keep it more compact and less leggy, but some late sprouts shot up and got away from me.  Several flower clusters have opened but others are still developing - so hopefully the show will continue a while.
