Scrophularia marilandiaca (Late Figwort)
This native to the United States and Canada isn't seen in gardens very often because it's deemed not showy enough, but I think the reddish brown flowers, though small, are interesting, Although not particularly photogenic, rest assured that the blooms are far more attractive when seen in person.. It is one of those plants that needs an up close and personal visit, which hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies do in abundance. Late Figwort is one of the best nectar sources for butterflies, bees, and the ruby-throated hummingbird, and according to Prairie Moon Nursery, Figworts are given a special rating by the Xerces Society because of their value to insects. Late Figwort grows anywhere from four feet to over nine feet in average soil and full sun, although shade is tolerated. It blooms from July to September, and in fall the leaves and stems turn maroon. It adds interest, form, and function to the native landscape.
