Culver’s Root- Native
Culver’s Root is native to Northeastern North America. It features 9″ long, stately spires of tiny, tube like white to blue flowers. These flower spikes bloom atop strong, upright stems from late Spring to early Summer. They open from the top down. Blooms can last through most of the Summer. This native plant often occurs in open woodlands, and moist meadows. This is a great plant to provide height at the back of your perennial garden, and look great in a mixed shrub border or a native planting. Adds great texture to your cut flower bouquet.
