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 from 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.  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.       .

Packet contains 100 seeds
