False nettle (Boehmeria cylindrica) starter plant, butterfly host plant (dormant)


False nettle Boehmeria cylindrica starter plant. Butterflies such as red admirals, questionmarks, milberts tortoiseshells and more use nettles as host plants, but many people aren’t fond of stinging nettles. However they also use false nettle, so you can attract butterflies without the ouch

These have gone dormant for the season. Most of the native plants we sell need a natural dormancy period and we keep them outside to naturally go through this. The plants you will receive will have yellowing, or little to no foliage left on them, but will have good roots. After planting they will continue to grow more roots so treat them like they were growing even when no foliage is visable.

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
