The Frog Fruit (Phyla nodiflora or Lippia nodiflora), is flowering, broadleaf plant in the Verbenaceae family. It grow wildly along field sides. The vine like branches of the plant grow up to 3 feet long. Dense growth of the plants present a very beautiful view and serve as a ground-cover. I like this plant because it's one of the host plants of Peacock pansy butterfly in our area. The inflorescence consists of a purple-colored center encircled by small white-to-pink flowers. Other common names of frog fruit are sawtooth fogfruit, turkey tangle and matchweed.
