Verbena hastata

Blue vervain is a lovely perennial that will bring beauty to any garden. The spires of purple-blue blossoms grow on stiff, hairy, squares-shaped stems, and draws plenty of pollinators over its long bloom period.


Happiest in moist, full-sun areas, this plant can also tolerate average moisture soils as well.
