Description

Blue Vervain, Verbena hastata. Upright, creeping, self-seeding herbaceous perennial significant in medicine and ritual. Native to the Eastern US and hardy to -40 °F. Bright blue flowers on reddish-tinted plants, in multiple, long-lasting, handsome spikes. Fresh or dried leaf, in tincture or tea, is a bitter remedy for treating indigestion, colds, and fevers. A good ingredient for home brew, it is also a traditional offering plant to honor the garden spirits. If there is a concern that the plant will spread, then keep it in a pot, or provide other suitable barriers.
