Vervain, Blue (Verbena hastata) potted plant, organic

(1 customer review)

$8.50$57.00

Family:  Vervain (Verbenaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7

(American Blue Vervain, Swamp Verbena) Upright yet creeping, self-seeding herbaceous perennial native to the Eastern US.  Bright blue flowers on reddish-tinted plants, in multiple, long-lasting, handsome spikes 3 to 5 feet tall..  Fresh or dried leaf is the part used.  Traditional usage: indigestion, colds, and fevers.  A good ingredient for home brew, it is also a traditional offering plant to honor the garden spirits.  Plants prefer full sun to part shade and moist garden soils.  Good drainage is not a necessary prerequisite.  If there is a concern that the plant will spread, then keep it in a pot, or provide other suitable barriers, and cut back the flowers after peak display. Space plants 6 inches to a foot apart.

Potted Plant, Certified Organically Grown

  1. Question

    dinny (verified owner)

    Planted in June of last year and mid summer noticed it looked like 2 different plants growing from the same spot. Got busy and forgot about this plant.

    Now in March there is certainly a “mint” looking plant (PLANT A) – square stem, very mild mint fragrance, vigorously spreading from where I planted the Vervain. Could this mint looking plant (PLANT A in photo) be a bonus plant or Vervain? Or is PLANT B (spotted several clumps about 2 feet from the original plant) actually the vervain – or a weed?

      Hi Dinny, Thanks for contacting. The plant B looks like blue vervain. The plant A looks like maybe some kind of mint, maybe chocolate mint. Honestly very hard for me to tell, my plant identification is largely based on smell and other botanical and tactile factors that are not well represented by a photo.

      Thanks Richo! I need to get that mint out and leave room for the Vervain. How does Vervain tend to spread – roots or seeds?

  2. Question

    I have fond memories of the Verveine tea served in Europe. I wonder if it is the same as the ‘ Blue Vervain’ or the ‘European Vervain’?
    Thank you
