Plant Features

Our Coral Porterweed Plant is larger and more floriferous than the native varieties, its salmony-orange blossoms measuring about 1/2 inch and growing along the entire length of its two to three foot stems. Its nectar-filled flowers draw butterflies and hummingbirds from far and wide throughout its continuously long season of flowering, even when it's hot and humid. Coral Porterweed is a reliable perennial, an evergreen in the warmest climes and may even return from the roots in zone 8 if mulched well.

Hummingbird Magnet! Coral Porterweed

The flowers are beautiful, colorful and always entice the Hummingbirds! I've seen them pass up other Hummingbird-attracting flowers for these flowers! I love this plant and its flowers! I've a double stacked tomato cage surrounding one of the plants for the Hummers to sit and perch. They love to perch, look around and guard their flowers! Last year, I used another tomato cage around the other Coral Porterweed for the Hummers and even though it wasn't stacked, they still loved perching on it! Porterweed is easy to grow and love. The Coral flowering variety is my favorite of the varieties! Thank you GrowJoy for offering it this year and I hope you always do!
