Phyla nodiflora, Turkey Tangle Frogfruit


Special Note:

While P. nodiflora is difficult to grow from seed, they are very easily propagated by cuttings.  Simply cut a 4-inch piece, trim all but 1-2 leaves, place in a couple of inches of soil, and keep moist. It also does very well being cloned. Frogfruit is an incredibly resilient plant, especially once established, and is able to withstand drought and flooding. P. nodiflora is also one of the host plants for the common buckey butterfly (Junonia coenia).
