Verbena Hastata is a native to North America and a member of the vervain family with small, blueish-purple flowers that bloom in summer. Found across North America, blue vervain has been utilized for its healthful properties for centuries by Native Americans and later by folk herbalists. The herb was traditionally steeped as blue vervain tea but can also be tinctured, made into a syrup, or incorporated into bath and body products like foot soaks and creams. It is incredibly similar in appearance and properties to its European cousin Verbena Officinalis, whom it is often mistaken for. Other common names for blue vervain include American blue vervain and wild hyssop.
