Texas Frog-fruit can be used as an excellent ground cover and is evergreen in warm years. It is also evergreen in areas protected from frost. It spreads vigorously. Frog-fruit generally is a good nectar plant for butterflies. It is an attractive plant rambling over boulders or the edges of hanging baskets. It also can tolerate drought and flooding.
This species is a member of the verbena family (family Verbenaceae), which includes about 75 genera and 3,000 species of herbs, shrubs, and trees, mostly of tropical and warm temperate regions. Among them, teak is a highly prized furniture wood, and Vervain, Lantana, Lippia or
Frog-Fruit, and Chase Tree or Vitex are grown as ornamentals.
Benefit
Use Ornamental: A great groundcover for full sun and part shade areas, with trailing foliage
and charming, mini-verbena-like flowers. Would also do well as a pot plant.
Use Wildlife: Attracts numerous insect pollinators.
Conspicuous Flowers: yes
Attracts: Butterflies
Larval Host: Phaon Crescentspot, Buckeye, and White Peacock butterflies
Nectar Source: yes
Deer Resistant: Moderate

It says it is moderately deer resistant, but is it frog resistant?

"Frog-fruit", where in the heck did they get that name, too funny.

Oh, great shot too.

I don't think I've ever seen these lovely little things. Maybe I wasn't looking.
Big Grey Mare 2011-07-31 16:39:39
Had to come back and tell you this: There's been a lot of 'stuff" happening here. The other morning, when I woke up, the Word of the Lord came to me and said, "Be still and know that I am God."

He will NEVER leave us nor forsake us, Angela!!!
