Wild Weeds – Weed of the Month

False Foxglove

Agalinis fasciculata

False Foxglove is an herbaceous annual with branched stems and very fine leaves. Showy pink tubular flowers bloom from later summer through fall. This plant reaches heights of 4 feet and although native to Florida, it can be parasitic on the roots of nearby plants. It is commonly found in coastal uplands, pine flatwoods, and wetlands across the state. False Foxglove is a host plant for the common buckeye butterfly.
