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 well in areas with 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 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 July and September.
Blue Vervain Plant Uses
Blue Vervain 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 roots, flowers, and leaves of the plant. Native Americans would even grind the plant in its entirety and use it in meal and flour. Aesthetically, it makes a great addition to gardens, particularly rain gardens and butterfly gardens. The flower attracts pollinators like the bumblebee and hummingbirds. Hummingbirds will eat the seeds. They are a source of food and are highly nutritious for them.
Blue Vervain Plant As An Herb
As helpful as it is in bringing a small ecosystem to a garden, the benefits of it being used as an herb are also great. It can be used for fighting depression and anxiety. It also has properties that promote healthy, restful sleep. Blue Vervain extracts have also been used to treat pain and inflammation when used as a topical ointment and rubbed onto joints and muscles. Blue Vervain is highly useful as an herb because it can be ingested orally as a tea, used topically in lotions or creams, and even used as a tincture.
