This large growing shrub to tender shrub-like perennial makes a fantastic show throughout summer. Give it plenty of room and a well-drained, moderately fertile soil, preferably in full sun. Plant with caution as butterflies and hummingbirds will repeatedly attack the flowers. Item # 571.

Pinkish-purple, rarely white, foxglove-like flowers are produced singly and in small clusters beginning in midsummer and continuing into fall. The flowers attract bees and other pollinators and the plant itself serves as a caterpillar host plant for Buckeye Butterflies. Purple False Foxglove, Agalinis fasciculata, develops into a generally single-stemmed, loosely branching upright growing plant with fine deep green foliage. This native annual is common along the Gulf Coast and southern East Coast and as far north as southern Missouri, Kentucky, and Virginia. This excellent summer flowering native may only be an annual but it produces copious amounts of tiny seeds to help ensure its return the following season. Interestingly, Purple False Foxglove is a hemi-parasite (it can be grown alone in a container and so this does not seem to be a requirement) on herbaceous plants and grasses though it does not seem to do its neighbors any real harm.

This is a white form of our native Maypop with pure white 'petals' topped by a corona of dark purple, lavender, and white producing an overall lavender effect. In all other regards this Passionvine appears to be identical to the native species, Passiflora incarnata. If you are looking to produce Maypop fruit be sure to have another pollen fertile Passiflora species on hand, like our seed grown Maypops, as Passionvines are generally self-sterile (vs. self-fertile) and so may not produce any fruit on their own. Pollinated flowers are followed by round passion fruit that ripen to yellow and contain a tangy tropical tasting clear flesh that surrounds each of the small black inedible seeds. This easy to grow perennial native vine can grow to 15-18' each year if given a suitable support but it is also happy to clamber along a fence, trellis, or any other support that it can grasp with its strong tendrils. Provide a well-drained soil and a full to mostly sunny position for the best results. The Maypop is the caterpillar host for the Gulf Fritillary and other members of the Longwing family as well as the Variegated Fritillary. Item# 11518
