Phyla nodiflora, also known as turkey tangle fogfruit, is a perennial herb that is native to North and Central America. It is a member of the Verbenaceae family and is related to plants such as verbena and lantana. Phyla nodiflora is known for its small, pink or purple flowers, which are arranged in clusters at the ends of the stems. The plant has long, slender leaves that are arranged in a rosette pattern at the base of the plant.
Phyla nodiflora is often used in landscaping as a groundcover or in areas where erosion control is needed. It is tolerant of drought and can grow in a variety of soil types, making it a low-maintenance plant. However, it can also be aggressive and may spread rapidly if not kept in check.
