Vervain, Blue (Verbena hastata), packet of 100 seeds, Organic

$2.95

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.  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.  Sow in the early spring or give 2 weeks cold conditioning by putting seeds in moist medium in a plastic bag in the fridge (not freezer) and then sow in warm soil.  Barely cover and tamp.  Germ in 2 to 4 weeks.  Space plants 2 feet apart.       .

100 seeds/pkt., Certified Organically Grown

    The plant will placate ills, real or imagined.  Once imagined, ills become real, don’t they?  It’s a quirk of the human condition that most of us would like to escape.  Vervain helps you escape.
