False Nettle Plants for your Butterfly Garden
Our native False Nettle plants (Boehmeria cylindrica), as with all of our plants, are grown specifically to be safe for butterflies/caterpillars. You can start feeding caterpillars right away. False Nettle is in the same family as stinging nettle but without any sting.
Red Admiral butterflies, Question Mark butterflies, and Eastern Comma butterflies will all use this plant as their host plant to feed their caterpillars.
These plants are in a 3 1/2″ pot and are ready to go in the ground or be potted into a larger container.
