Very thrilled to be finally able to offer this Veratrum which was formerly in the genus Melanthium. Native from the Midwest to East Coast, this thrives in marshy, boggy settings or damp woods.  Perfect in rich moisture retentive soil in the garden.  White plumes of flowers to 5'+ in June and July.  Deer proof - thank goodness for toxic alkaloids!
