Vervain is a lovely plant that produce tall stalks covered with small purple flowers that the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love. It's nice to sit on a garden bench and gaze at both the flowers and the insects.
It also makes a great, soothing tea. As a caution on preparation, a tea brewed from straight vervain is bitter. I make mine palatable by mixing it approximately 50/50 with rose petals, then adding honey. The tea has the relaxing effect it's famous for...just the opposite of my morning cup of Irish Breakfast black tea :-).
I have found all the advice on how to keep it that is posted on the Grower's Exchange information section is correct. Just add that vervain won't compete well against aggressive plants. I am having to move my yarrow into a separate garden.
