Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater neighborhood)
Nikon Coolpix P7700
The plant was growing in a neighbor’s garden in his front yard.
Joe Pye Weed – Order Asterales : Family Asteraceae (Sunflowers) : Tribe Eupatorieae : Genus Eutrochium
The plant does not get its name from a person but the Native Americans called it jopi. It is native to the USA and Canada.
Editing was done with On1 Photo RAW 2020. In Develop mode I increased contrast, midtones, shadows and structure and decreased highlights, whites and blacks. Under Color I increased the vibrance a bit. I used the ‘Landscape – Forest’ preset in the ‘Starting Points’ category and added the Sharpening (Find Amazing Detail) filter.

Although Joe Pye Weed is considered to be a wildflower, the plant I photographed was in a neighbor’s garden. If you have a garden, do you grow plants in it that are native to your area?
