Any permies have more information? We have a couple of these growing in our garden. This year we're going to try some wild seed harvesting, and since these thing are bee/butterfly magnets, it's at the top of the list. They stick out beautifully among all the other wildflowers; they have a really distinct look. This is about the most in-depth information I could find. If anyone has permaculture-specific uses, please let me know!

This was a very good year for Joe Pye Weed in my area. I love them just cuz they're native and they're pretty insect magnets (as you say), but I've never used them for anything else. Couldn't find anything permaculture related.

"A good remedy for gravel in the gallbladder, dissolves stones, chronic urinary and kidney disorders, bed wetting, poor appetite, dropsy, neuralgia, rheumatism. Very soothing and will relax the nerves. Increases the flow of urine. Combined with uva ursi, marshmallow, blue cohosh, and lily root, good for female troubles, bladder and kidney infections, diabetes, and Bright’s disease.

Also used for headache, hysteria, impotence, indigestion, intermittent fever, sciatica, sore throat, urine retention, vomiting, asthma, chronic coughs, colds, typhus fever " http://medicinalherbinfo.org/herbs/JoePyeWeed.html
