Blue Culver's Root - Veronicastrum caeruleum


Blue Culver's Root, scientifically known as Veronicastrum virginicum var. virginicum, is a tall and elegant perennial native to North America. It thrives in moist, well-drained soils and partial to full sun conditions, making it suitable for a variety of garden settings.

This plant grows to heights of about 3 to 5 feet, with erect stems that bear whorls of lance-shaped leaves along their length. In mid to late summer, Blue Culver's Root produces slender spikes of small, tubular, blue-purple flowers arranged in dense, elongated clusters. These flowers attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators, contributing to garden biodiversity.

Blue Culver's Root is drought tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance. Its architectural form and attractive flowers make it a striking addition to perennial borders, cottage gardens, and naturalized areas. It combines well with other native perennials and grasses, creating a dynamic and wildlife-friendly garden landscape.
