Verbena hastata – Blue Vervain


A colorful plant of wet places in the wild that adapts to garden beds with good, rich, moisture-retentive soil. Or grow it in a bog garden or alongside a stream. The dark color of the small flowers mixes well with the yellows and golds of the summer prairie and wet meadow. Blue Vervain provides not only color but is an excellent nectar plant for butterflies and beneficial insects. For companions, try Helen’s Flower, New York Ironweed, Brown-eyed Susan, Bee Balm, Rose Mallow, Prairie Cordgrass, and Indian Grass. An aggressive self-sower.
