Water figwort (Scrophularia auriculata) is a tall vigorous British native pond or bog garden plant which produces masses of tiny maroon flowers from June to September. It is excellent for wildlife, providing nectar for Bumble bees and pollinated by the common wasp, and is an RHS ‘Plants for Pollinators’ plant. In the nursery it is one of the most popular plants with the pollinators and is always covered with masses of wasps, butterflies and bees. Happy in the pond or bog garden it is also able to tolerate periods of drought.
Cut back after flowering to avoid self-seeding.
