A lovely, tall, back of the border, late-flowering clumper that loves moist feet and good sun. I particularly admire its white elegance in the evenings when it reminds me of a candelabra! Plants bulk up with time offering large clumps of white spires and attractive foliage whorled at regular intervals along the stems. A native from Manitoba east and south to Florida.

This stately specimen is prized for its well-defined, clean lines. Elegant spires of white flowers crown the whorls of deep green leaves. Culver's Root (Veronicastrum virginicum) creates a unique vertical accent, and can be combined with other white flowers to create 'White Gardens' and 'Moon Gardens'. Hardy to Zones 3 - 8.

A giant sized plant that does indeed look rather veronica like, reaching over 6 feet tall when mature and happy with many long spikes of white flowers over a long period in early summer. Easy and tough in full sun, the perfect antidote to all those overly dwarf perennial varieties. Zone 3
