Typically Blue or Purple Flowers. Blue Porterweed is a Florida native landscape plant and doesn’t grow as large as the purple. Attracts butterflies. Trim back hard in spring to achieve a full and bushy look. For best appearance, fertilize 3 times per year in spring, summer and fall with a quality granular fertilizer and supplement feedings with bonemeal or liquid fertilizer for increased blooms.
