Culver's Root
Veronicastrum virginicum
Location: along south fence w/Joe pye
A most stately and distinctive plant, Culver’s Root is prized for its well-defined, clean lines. Elegant white flowerstalks rise like spires above the whorls of deep green leaves in July and August. Growing three to six feet tall, it creates a unique vertical accent when planted with other prairie plants or perennials. Fantastic when planted in “White Gardens” and “Moon Gardens” with other white flowering prairie plants.Grows best in medium to moist rich soil, in full sun to shade.
