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.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Culver's root, Veronica White to pale blue July and August. 4 feet Easy to grow

  • 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.
