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. Late Figwort blooms occur later than Early Figwort, typically July to October. Rarely available from most nurseries, planting these unique plants will surely bring joy and novelty to any native landscape.
