Description for Leptandra virginica

It is a synonym of Veronicastrum virginicum. Veronicastrum virginicum is a wildflower native to the United States from southern Maine to northwest Florida to northern Louisiana up through Minnesota and a bit north of the Canada US border; good for USDA zones of 3 to 8.

Typically reaches 3-7' tall when in bloom. Resembles a large Veronica, except its lance-shaped leaves, are in whorls on the stems rather than the opposite. Dense, slender spikes (racemes) of tiny, tube-like, white to pale blue flowers open from the top down in late spring to early summer atop strong, upright stems.

Caring for Leptandra virginica

  • Place plants in full sun in average, well-drained soil.
  • Drainage is important; do not place where roots will sit in water.
  • Leaves develop the best flavor in full sun.

Typical uses of Leptandra virginica

Special features: This root, when fresh, is a somewhat acrid cathartic; but drying dissipates its harshness, and it is then an almost pure relaxant. Its action is mild and very slow the cathartic result rarely being obtained from a common dose in less than ten hours, and sometimes not for eighteen hours.

Culinary use: NA

Ornamental use: The plant is used for an ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: The stomach as an organ feels its impression; as is made known by a slight sense of nausea it usually occasions, and which sometimes is quite unpleasant and continues for several hours.

Note: Please consult your health expert.
