1-2′ tall native evergeen groundcover blooms repeatedly attracting butterflies, skippers and long-tongued bees. Though native to a large part of the country, it is very rare in Coastal SC.  I searched over 10 years for it, before finding it in the summer of 2017.  The 1′-2′ tall plants were scrambling all over the irregular terrain left by timber managing equipment.    The roadside and pine plantation are both sprayed frequently, so I rescued a few  of them to use for propagation material. They were growing on very dry site. I was afraid that they would succumb to diseases under twice daily overhead irrigation, but they have been doing fine in the nursery. , http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/prairie/plantx/rs_vervainx.htm suggests  that they would be relatively resistant to deer and rabbits  Interplant with one of the “Deer Baffles” such as Salvia coccinea, Chasmanthium sessiliflorum or Piptochaetium avenaceum if deer are problematic.  Native to  AL, AR, CO, CT, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NM, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WI, and WV. We propagated our plants from Jasper Co., SC (the southernmost county in the state).  Plant in full/ part sun in well drained soil.
