Blue Vervain

Blue Vervain

Verbena Hastata

The small, tubular, blue-violet flowers of Blue Vervain bloom from the bottom up in July’s heat.  The numerous crowning spikes of blossoms give a candelabra-like appearance to this graceful, widely-distributed plant.

As the alternative name Swamp Verbena suggests, this Vervain likes wet, even soggy, conditions; but also will grow in medium soils.  Full sun to partial sun are its preferred light conditions.
