The Blue Vervain Plant

Blue Vervain, also known as Verbena hastata, is a flowering plant from the family Verbenaceae. This particular plant can grow wildly all across North America, but does acclimate better to colder temperatures and doesn't do as well in areas that have a significant amount of days above the 86 degree mark. For example, it's most suitable for and grows best in full sunlight near moist grassy meadows close to water sources like rivers and streams. You can also find them along roadside ditches that are wet as well. It's notable for and easy to identify the branch-like shoots tipped with bluish-purple leaves that are cropped short on the tips of the plant. The flowers peak and hit full bloom between the months of July and September.
