Product Code: TEU-CAN-X

$5.99

Wild native perennial for pond banks, moist meadows, large rain garden or swales, or erosion control in moist areas.

This plant is actually quite showy, reaching 3' of height and 1.5-3' of width. It spreads with rhizomes, but in ideal conditions can spread aggressively.

Sun, half shade, average soil, medium wet, medium moisture. Flowers are soft pink-purple and top the plants in June/July to September.

Very good plant for pollinators - especially for long-tongued bees (bumblebees, honeybees, Anthophorine bees, Cuckoo bees, Miner bees, and Leaf-Cutting bees). Other visitors can be green Metallic bees, Bee flies, Thick-Headed flies, many different butterflies or skippers. Flowers offer  nectar to hummingbirds and Hummingbird moths.

This native wildflower is completely rabbit and deer resistant (due to it's bitterness). Native Americans used is as herb, till 1990 it was used for in teas and capsules for weight control and lowering cholesterol, until it was discovered that it can also cause liver damage.

Hardy in zones 4 to 9. Native wildflower to all states of USA.

So we recommend to use it in more wild areas and not in regular beds - pond or creek banks, moist ditch, big rain garden, wet meadow or pollinator meadows.

Also called Canadian Germander.
