Our Experience

Wingstem in the wild is found sprawling in partial sun to shade areas beneath trees. We recommend giving it ample room to grow. The common name refers to the “wings” on the main stems.

Last year during a NABA count I watched a Summer Azure lay an egg on the stem of a wingstem. It’s always so amazing to watch a butterfly lay eggs!
