    Frogfruit (Lippia nodiflora) is known by many names including Turkey tangle fogfruit, Capeweed, Matchhead, Creeping Charlie and Carpetweed. Frogfruit is both a versatile and vital wildflower. It is a good nectar source for bees and small butterflies such as hairstreaks, and is the larval host for the White peacock (Anartia jatrophae), Phaon crescent (Phyciodes phaon), and Common buckeye (Junonia coenia) butterflies. It occurs naturally in hammocks, beaches, and lawns and along roadsides. This evergreen perennial is low-growing and creeping, often forming a dense mat of green foliage. Its distinct white and purple flowers are small but very showy, particularly when planted in mass.
