Hoary Vervain (Verbena stricta) The 1-6 ft., hairy stem produces a terminal cluster of narrow, flowering spikes. Small lavender to blue flowers appear in a ring halfway down the ascending spike. A common invader of overgrazed pastures, this plant does not compete well in vigorous stands of native grasses. Seeds are consumed by small mammals and prairie-chickens.
