queen of the meadow

Queen of the Meadow, also called trumpet weed, is a member of the aster family that occurs naturally in the moist woodlands of northeastern and central North America. It is easily recognized by its sweet-smelling, deep pink flower clusters that emerge atop tall stems that can reach up to 7 feet in height.

This herb is known by many other common names that indicate its historical use, such as gravel root and kidney root. The plant is also commonly known as Joe Pye weed, a name that honors a Native American medicine man who reputedly introduced the herb to the American colonists to help control typhus outbreaks.

Background: The name Joe Pye weed is for a Native American man of the North East who used and applied the herb for its diaphoretic properties. 

Description: This herbaceous, perennial, has horizontal, woody caudex, with many long, dark-brown fibers, from which sprout one or more solid, glabrous, green, sometimes purplish stems, 5 or 6 feet in height, with a purple band at the joints, about an inch broad. Leaves are to 6 in., oblong-ovate or lanceolate, pointed, feather-veined, coarsely serrate, slightly scabrous, with a soft pubescence beneath along the mid-vein and veinlets, thin, soft, on petioles 1 in.long, and from 8-12 in. long, 4 in. wide. Flowers are tubular, purple or pink-purple, to whitish, with multiple florets included in an 8-leaved calyx. Heads are in lax, dense, compound cylindrical corymbs, 4 to 5 together in the form of whorl. It grows in swamps and other low places, in dry woods and meadows.
