Frogfruit, also known as capeweed, is a short-lived perennial groundcover that has small but very showy white and purple flowers. It is the host plant for the white peacock, phaon crescent and common buckeye butterflies. It is also a good nectar source for hairstreak butterflies. Frogfruit’s habitat includes wet prairie, wet flatwoods and moist sandy soils, and is common in South Florida lawns.
