Verbena hastata

This plant is known as Blue Vervain to most people.  It is quite common and usually found near water.  It is rather distinctive because there are usually a number of flowering stalks sticking up higher than the plants around them.

The unique flowerheads always have only some of the flowers blooming at a time.

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
