Figworts are nectar-rich plants. One of the best species for attracting butterflies, bees, other insects and birds - especially the Ruby-throated Hummingbird! Both early and late figworts can reach heights over 5 feet. Early Figwort blooms occur between May and July. Rarely available from most nurseries, planting these unique plants will surely bring joy and novelty to any native landscape.
