Culver's Root is a statuesque native wildflower with distinctive whorled leaves and floral spikes held aloft like a candelabra. The flowerheads are covered with tiny white-to-pale-blue florets, buzzing with bees and butterflies. This perennial creates a striking vertical accent and pairs well with tall perennials and grasses. Highly adaptable for pollinator gardens, cottage gardens, or meadows. (Veronicastrum virginicum)

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).

Plant Information

Culver's Root is an adaptable, deer-resistant, and low-maintenance perennial native to moist prairies, open woods, and streambanks throughout the northeastern and central United States and southern Canada. Plants perform well in enriched garden beds and rain gardens. Culver’s Root thrives in full sun but tolerates some shade, but they may grow leggy or flop in too much shade. Culver's Root can take several years to establish in a garden, but once it does it draws scores of pollinators. The Xerces Society identifies Culver's Root as a plant of special value for native bees, honeybees, and healthy populations of beneficial insects to prevent harmful pests. Both long- and short-tongued bees collect pollen and nectar as do honeybees, bumblebees, mason bees, green metallic bees, and masked bees. Other insect visitors include butterflies and moths. Pair plants with tall grasses and perennials in the garden or meadowscape.
