Blue Vervain is a perennial plant in the Verbenaceae family. It is native to North America and grows in moist meadows, prairies, and along riverbanks.

Blue Vervain's Appearance

It has a tall, slender stem that can grow up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) in height. The leaves are lance-shaped and toothed, and the flowers are small and blue-purple, arranged in spikes at the top of the stem—the plant blooms from July to September.

Blue Vervain's Uses

It is still used as a herbal remedy in modern times. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-spasmodic properties. It is commonly used to treat anxiety, nervous tension, and insomnia. It also alleviates digestive problems, such as indigestion, gas, and bloating. It is always best to consult a healthcare provider before using any herbal remedy. It is a beautiful plant that is native to North America and is often used for its medicinal properties. It grows well in moist to wet soils and is commonly found near bodies of water, such as ponds, streams, and wetlands.

Where To Plant Blue Vervain

 Choose a location that receives full to partial sun. It can tolerate some shade but will not grow as well in too shady areas. Look for a location that has moist to wet soil. It prefers consistently moist soils, so planting it near a water source is ideal. Make sure the soil is well-draining. While it prefers moist soil, it does not like waterlogging, so the soil must drain well to prevent root rot.

Avoid planting it in areas prone to flooding. While the plant likes moist soil, it can not withstand long underwater exposure. Consider planting it in a wildflower garden, pond, stream, or rain garden. These areas are ideal for the plant's growing conditions and will allow it to thrive. It is a beautiful and beneficial plant that, with the right growing conditions, can be a great addition to any garden or natural area.

Blue Vervain is a flowering plant from the family Verbenaceae. It can grow wildly across North America but acclimates better to colder temperatures and doesn't do as well in areas with a significant number of days above the 86-degree mark.


For example, it's most suitable for growing in full sunlight near moist grassy meadows and water sources like rivers and streams. You can also find them along wet roadside ditches. It's notable for its easy identification of branch-like shoots tipped with bluish-purple leaves cropped short on the tips of the plant. The flowers peak and hit full bloom between July and September.

It is a very versatile plant. It can be used aesthetically as well as medicinally. Traditionally, it was used to treat stomach pain, arthritis, fevers, headaches, and even the common cold. This was made possible by using the plant's roots, flowers, and leaves. Native Americans would grind the plant and use it in meals and flour.

Aesthetically, it is an excellent addition to rain and butterfly gardens. The flower attracts pollinators like bumblebees and hummingbirds. Hummingbirds eat seeds, which are a highly nutritious food source.

It brings a small ecosystem to a garden, and its benefits as an herb are also great. It can be used to fight depression and anxiety and has properties that promote healthy, restful sleep.

Blue Vervain's extracts, such as topical ointment rubbed onto joints and muscles, have also been used to treat pain and inflammation. It is beneficial as an herb because it can be ingested orally as a tea, used topically in ointments or creams, or used as a tincture.
