Culver's Root is a tall, robust native wildflower with attractive whorled leaves. In late summer, the plants are crowned by spiky racemes densely packed with tiny tubular white florets. The inflorescences branch several times, giving the appearance of a dramatic candelabra. The stems are round and smooth, and are unbranched except near the tip.
