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.
