The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

Verbena simplex, Narrow-leaved Vervain

~Haven't had any luck with germination for this species~

Verbena simplex

Narrow-leaved Vervain

  • Full sun 
  • Average to dry soil
  • 24” tall, 12” to 18” wide
  • Summer blooming
  • Ontario Native, Thrives in dry meadow settings

New to me this year, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery. 

A small Vervain, this one is best adapted to sandy or gravely spaces where the challenging conditions keep competition from other plants to a minimum.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
