Blue vervain (Verbena hastata) is a wonderful plant for medium to moist, sunny butterfly gardens. Great for rain gardens. It produces multiple stem/ clusters of blue/ light purple flowers in mid summer. It gets about 4 1/2ft tall. It is a short lived perennial, but an excellent self seeder. It’s not a big fan of competition, so give it some room to grow and for new seedlings to start. It is also the host plant for buckeye butterflies.
As with all of our plants, they are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The pots can be removed or left on for planting.
We keep all of our plants where they can follow their natural cycles. Here in MI, these plants are dormant and are just stems with roots. However, once received, plant them and let them finish their winter cycle and they will come up in the spring,
