Phyla
Fogfruit
There are only a small number of species in the genus, and most are found only in America, with the exception of Phyla nodiflora which is found in tropical areas worldwide. Fogfruit are known for their tight clusters of flowers that grow in a mat-like form, spreading outwards. The Greek word phyle means tribe and it is thought that its use in the scientific name Phyla probably refers to the way the flowers group together.
Stachytarpheta
Porterweeds
Porterweeds are often found in gardens where the plants’ summer flowers attract different types of butterflies. Species in the genus have upright, branching stems and often develop a woody base, giving the plants a more shrub-like appearance. The flowers differ in color according to the variety, but all blossoms are rich in nectar.
Citharexylum
Fiddlewoods
Fiddlewoods are a genus of deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs that are native to tropical and subtropical South America. These plants typically produce fragrant, attractive white flowers, often throughout the year.
