Verbena canadensis, also called Vervain, is native to much of the eastern two-thirds of the United States. It is found as far west as Colorado and New Mexico, northward to Minnesota and eastward to New York and south to Florida. It is naturally found on roadsides, sandhills, and other dry soils.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
