The Fringed Willowherb, scientifically known as Epilobium ciliatum, is quite a versatile wildflower, and there's more to it than just its pretty looks. Let's take a closer look at this resilient plant and learn how to cultivate it in your outdoor oasis.
Fringed Willowherb is a graceful perennial herb that can stand tall at heights ranging from 1 to 3 feet (30-90 cm). Its bright green, lance-shaped leaves are finely toothed, adding a touch of elegance. But the real showstopper is its vibrant flowers, which boast fringed, magenta-pink petals with a sunny yellow center, its main identification feature. It's not just a visual treat; these blossoms are a magnet for pollinators.
