VAMPIRE’S VERVAIN HAS BEEN MADE FAMOUS BY THE VAMPIRE SERIES AS VERVAIN WAS THE ONLY THING THAT COULD PROTECT YOU AGAINST BEING SUCKED ON AND INFLUENCED BY VAMPIRES! IT HAS SOME OTHER USES TOO…

Vervain is a slender perennial plant with small, pale lilac flowers borne on leafless spikes. It is indigenous to the Mediterranean but has been cultivated widely throughout eastern Europe, North Africa, China, and Japan. The name “verbenae” originally was used in Roman times to describe all plants used on altars for their aromatic qualities.

The aerial parts have been used traditionally for many conditions, including stimulation of lactation and treatment of dysmenorrhea, jaundice, gout, kidney stones, headache, depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Vervain is also considered an astringent, a bitter digestive tonic, and a diuretic.

Always consult a medical practitioner before embarking on any program. The information on this page is not diagnostic, therefore always consult a herbal practitioner or your GP in order to obtain a diagnosis. Never stop taking prescribed treatment without consulting your GP or a qualified herbal practitioner. Do not take without qualified medical advice.
In pregnancy there are documented adverse reactions. Avoid use.
There is no clinical evidence to support specific dose recommendations for vervain. Traditional use for its astringent properties required 2 to 4 g daily in an infusion.

Grow Notes
Prefers full to part shade in well-draining soil.

Frost resistant but drought tender.

Sow
Sow direct in late Winter to early Spring so the seeds can sit in cold, damp soil prior to germination. Sow on the surface of the soil, barely covering but tamping down to ensure good soil contact.

If raising seedlings, or planting late, place into the fridge for 2 weeks on a damp paper towel in a zip lock bag prior to potting up. Tamp down and don’t cover with soil, as they need light to germinate.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Germination
21-31 days at 15-25°C

Maturity
Perennial plant.
