Frog fruit is a native host plant for Phaon Crescent and Buckeye butterflies.
It is also a nectar plant for many small butterflies.
It is a native ground cover, often found in ditches and yards. Several species grow in the US and even into Canada.
When added to a garden, it can become extremely aggressive. We recommend growing it in ditches and other areas where its aggressive nature becomes an attractive addition.
In dry conditions, it lays close to the ground. In damp conditions, it may grow to over 12″ in height.
This is a great native plant to add to your collection of butterfly host and nectar plants. If you cannot find it locally, check out Shady Oak Butterfly Farm as a source for this plant.
