Verbena stricta (Hoary Vervain) [30 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that need a chilling period. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds in late fall to midwinter (pressed into the surface of the growing medium, or just barely covered) and set the pot outdoors so it can get a natural chilling period. If you sow after midwinter, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Colorful and long-flowering, hoary vervain(Verbena stricta) is a showy native perennial well suited for meadowy areas and naturalistic plantings. It can work in a border, too, but be aware that it can self-sow freely if you don’t deadhead it. Its slender, spike-like panicles carry purple flowers over hairy, grayish green leaves throgh much of the summer, with a total height typically around 3 to 4 feet, though it can get taller in ideal conditions. Native to much of the central US, hoary vervain is a host plant for the larvae of the common buckeye butterfly. Full sun; average to dry soil. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.

Harvested in October 2022. At least 30 seeds. Unknown ecotype.
