Day 337: Culver’s Root

“This species has multiple tapering, soft spikes of white to pale pink or bluish purple flowers that look like elegant, living candelabras. The blooms reach 4 feet or more, adding a vertical accent to the back of a mixed border or wild garden from mid-summer to early autumn. Plants spread to about 3 feet. Culver’s root’s lance-shaped, whorled leaves are deep green and remain attractive through the season. It is a widespread native of eastern North America, occurring in prairies, meadows, open woodlands, and grassy mountains.” To read more click here
