Vervain is one of those super-historic wildflowers that are common over most of the world. Vervain appears in Roman history, as a plant used to soak in fuel and then use as a torch.

It's a wild verbena (which you can tell by the botanical name), and you'll find it in meadows and along roadsides in the entire US and Canada. The plants grow up to 5 or 6 feet, and are topped by stunning blue flowers in pointed spikes. They look much like garden salvia or veronica. The flower stems are arranged like a candelabra at the end of each stalk.

This is a good, non-invasive plant for your wild garden--just add it near the back of your wildflowers, or spot a few throughout a meadow. The blooms open in midsummer through fall. And by the way, they're beautiful standing tall in big wildlfower arrangements.

    Comments about American Meadows Blue Vervain Seeds:

    This is a vibrant eye catching wildflower, that easily self seeds, and grows wild in pastures, roadsides, and untended fallow ground. It is however somewhat weedy in appearance. I personally like it very much, but it is not to everyones taste.

    Comments about American Meadows Blue Vervain Seeds:

    I do not see a single seedling. I thought it might be helpful to find images of a seedling, but no luck on any image for me. Again, I am V disappointed, as I am with the Bird's Foot Trefoil and can't imagine what I have done wrong. In all fairness, I find your site extremely well done and informative [...]. I tell lots of people at the garden center I work about you when they express an interest in native plants and wildflowers.

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
