Matchweed / Frogfruit – Live Plant

Frogfruit is both a versatile and vital wildflower. It is a good nectar source for bees and small butterflies such as hairstreaks, and is the larval host for the White peacock (Anartia jatrophae), Phaon crescent (Phyciodes phaon), and Common buckeye (Junonia coenia) butterflies. It occurs naturally in hammocks, beaches, and lawns and along roadsides. This evergreen perennial is low-growing and creeping, often forming a dense mat of green foliage making it a great groundcover. It also works well in a hanging basket. Its distinct white and purple flowers are small but very showy, particularly when planted in mass.

Perennial. 1 gallon pot. Grown by Wise Hands.
