    • This plant produces deep velvety purple blooms continuously from spring to fall.
    • Blooms appear in these approximate colours: Baby blue eyes. Leaves appear approximately as a Apple green.
    • It is a flower and is treated mainly as an annual/perennial, so it can grow either as a single season or multiple season plant.
    • Porterweed is known for its ground covering habit and growing to a height of approximately 60.96 cm (1.98 feet). This plant tends to be in bloom all year round.
    • If you would like to attract butterflies and bees to your garden, consider growing this plant.

    Typical uses of Stachytarpheta

    Special features: This pest-free perennial blooms best during warm months. It is strange how these small blue flowers attract butterflies more than large-blooming, showy neighbors. Blue porter weed gradually reseeds nearby for a fresh batch of new plants.

    Culinary use: leaves

    Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose
