Figwort -- scrophularia nodosa
« on: December 02, 2007, 12:23:24 PM »
Within my search for bee plants to propagate last year, Figwort was one.  In the Snapdragon family I believe.  This plant bloomed this summer, the flowers were highly insignificant, barely even a flower that I would really describe, the flowers appeared very tiny.  But....yes, the bees loved it, as did many other garden beneficials. The plant grew about 3 feet tall by about the same width, very nice.   I cut it back after the flowering had finished and it regrew all its foliage.  Last week I saw that it still had all its foliage, perhaps an evergreen plant.  Enjoy this beautiful day and life we live.  Cindi
