Pellitory of the Wall (Parietaria judaica), 3 plants in 7 cm pots for £12.95 inclusive of postage
Pellitory of the Wall (Parietaria judaica), a smart upright evergreen plant often overlooked as is grows out of cracks in oldstone walls. It is related to the nettle, but is neater, and doesn’t sting. If you like an experiment try growing it in a sunny spot, as a potential alternative food plant of caterpillars of the Comma and Peacock butterflies and the Red Admiral which at various times have been observed feeding on it. It will grow in semi-shade but butterflies prefer the sunnier locations.
It will flourish in a bit of soil in a crack in a wall or on top of a log where there is no competition from anything else - use your imagination. The photograph taken in our wild flower garden in Fife on 8 July 2020 is of a plant that was transferred from a small pot to a bit of soil added to a fork in an old log in early spring.
You are purchasing THREE well-rooted plants in 7 cm square pots. Its a hardy evergreen perennial so you can buy it at any time in readiness for planting out.
