Scrophularia auriculara “variegata”-Variegated Figwort

Scrophularia or Figwort can be propagated in the spring by breaking apart the clump. Its flowers are insignificant, brown, and should be removed after blooming because they will take away from its green and creamy-white variegated leaves which should also be cut back hard in the summer if the foliage becomes tired or turning brown. This plant will remain evergreen in mild winters hardy in zones 5-9, requires a partial shade to full sun exposure in a moist soil well draining soil, and will reach a height of 12"-18".
