Blue Vervain, Verbena hastata


Blue Vervain is a striking native wildflower common across the United States. Its upright habit and bright purple flowers make it a welcome addition to any garden landscape. It can grow to a height of 3-4 feet and its light purple flowers open on long, upright cones from midsummer into early fall. The purple flowers attract many beneficial pollinators and are an important food source and host for the verbena moth and common buckeye butterfly. Several species of birds feed on its seeds. The leaves, roots, and flowers have all be used medicinally. For this reason, blue vervain is becoming increasingly popular among naturopaths and herbalists. 50 seeds/2.50; 1/4 oz./5.00; 1/2 oz./6.00
