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


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 are up and growing for the 2022 season. We keep our plants outside to coincide with the natural season here in Michigan. They are one year old plants that are ready to be planted. They can easily survive any remaining cold weather this spring.

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 .
