Scrophularia marilandica - Late Figwort - 250 Fresh Seeds

Scrophularia marilandica

This listing is for 250 seeds of this tall hardy perennial plant

Scrophularia marilandica, also called late figwort, Maryland figwort, carpenter's square, or eastern figwort, is a flowering plant in the family Scrophulariaceae, native throughout eastern and central North America, where it is found growing in dry woods from Manitoba and Quebec south to Texas and Florida.

It grows 1.5–3 metres (4 ft 11 in–9 ft 10 in) tall, with opposite, ovate leaves up to 15 centimetres (5.9 in) long and 9 centimetres (3.5 in) broad. The flowers are rounded, 8–9 millimetres (0.31–0.35 in) long, with a cup-like mouth that look somewhat like a horse's mouth with a bad overbite; they are a deep reddish-purple color on the inside, with a greenish to almost brown cast on the outside. Full of nectar, they are commonly visited by hummingbirds in late summer in its native range. This abundant supply of nectar will also attract butterfly's and other nectar feeding insects to your garden in the late summer.

It makes a stunning addition to the perennial border where it will form a architectural backdrop to shorter plants. It can also be grown in pots and containers. It is hardy in Zone 4 to 9, making it suitable for all temperate areas.
