Rose vervain is one of the best known garden flowers that came from here. No worries about this one spreading to the wild. This image was actually taken by my granddaughter Katie. She was seven then. Sadly, these days her primary interest in photography is to pick up her camera to call a friend. But she will have the chance to get back to it if she ever wants. Rose vervain grows in AL, AR, CO, CT, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY(T), LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NM. NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WI, and WV. Hidden Lake Gardens, 7/12/12. Vervain family, Verbenaceae.
