Verbena & The Bee

Verbena

I just wanted to brighten things up with a splash of color.
It’s raining here and it was a cool, gray day.

Legend has it that Common Vervain was used to pack Jesus’ wounds when he was taken from the cross.  For that reason it is also called the Holy Herb.

Common Name(s): Vervain, verbena, yerba de Santa Ana, enchanter’s plant, herb of the cross, Juno’s tears, pigeon’s grass, pigeonweed, herb of grace, prostrate verbena, erba croce, erba dei tagli
