It is a hostplant for buckeye butterflies.

I put one in before I realized it was not native this far north in Ohio. It has disappeared because it could not compete with the mistflower (Eupatorium coelestinum) I had planted in the same area. Ruellia humilis I planted at the same time in a different area is doing fine.

The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity.
