Veronicastrum virginicum
Common Name: Culver's Root Family: Scrophulariaceae (The Figwort Family)

Veronicastrum virginicum
Zoom In Photo:

A lovely, tall, back of the border, late-flowering clumper that loves moist feet and good sun. I particularly admire its white elegance in the evenings when it reminds me of a candelabra! Plants bulk up with time offering large clumps of white spires and attractive foliage whorled at regular intervals along the stems. A native from Manitoba east and south to Florida.
