Image: Pleasant Run Nursery
Veronicastrum virginicum or Culver's Root is a clump-forming, native perennial featuring white flower spikes in the summer (July-August). Culver's Root grows up to 4-7' tall and 2-3' wide, and develops a deep taproot system.
Plant in moist, well-drained soils in full to partial sun. Cutting back foliage in the early summer helps reduce the height of Culver's Root. Prolong bloom periods by deadheading spent flowers or cutting to the ground after bloom for a second flush of growth and bloom. The plant can be propagated by seed, cuttings or division in the spring.
