Royal Catchfly is rare to find in the wild due to loss of prairie habitat and is endangered in many states. The vivid red flowers attract Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds and Black Swallowtail butterflies. Royal Catchfly blooms June-August and makes an excellent landscaping plant, it grows best in very well-drained soil, but can grow in sandy soil and gravel. When mature it will reach up to 4′ in height.
