Worthy of Words Wednesday 7.4.12 – Culver’s Root!

04 Jul Worthy of Words Wednesday 7.4.12 – Culver’s Root!

The blossoms of this Culver’s Root (Veronicastrum virginicum) almost resemble the brilliant trails of fireworks, making it an excellent choice for an Independence Day post! As these blossoms open, they will be swarmed by butterflies and other pollinators and later in the season birds will visit to feast on the seed. A tall perennial (4-6′), Culver’s Root also adds a little interest through the frosty months, and provides a safe place for beneficial insects to overwinter. A Wonderful addition to the middle or back of the perennial border, and a great plant for the habitat garden!

      Thanks for the comments Scott! A great, but underused plant in most gardens.
