Catchfly is a major pollinator attractant, pulling in bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds for its nectar. Catchfly is a beautiful flower that blooms bright red, uniquely shaped blooms. This plant can be known for its ability to catch annoying insects like flies within the sticky nectar that occasionally oozes out of the flower. This plant is native to prairies and often grows to four feet in height. Catchfly is drought tolerant and survives various amounts of dry soils. This plant is slow growing until it begins blooming; needing a little maintenance to keep growing well. Thanks to its bright red flower blooms it can be sometimes called “Prairie Fire”.
