Verbena is a warm weather annual and tender perennial with a vigorous nature and trailing growth habit. These early bloomers are low and spreading, with ever-blooming flowers and ferny, much divided deep green leaves with toothed edges. They are a favorite of butterflies, producing many rounded clusters of small, tubular, five-lobed flowers with wide-flaring tips. Verbena are available in shades of red, blue, white, pink, purple, or rose and can be found across the Americas and some parts of Europe and Asia.
Verbena is commonly featured in hanging baskets, container combinations, rock gardens, or for mass planting in the garden. The taller and fuller varieties go nicely as mixed fillers in the garden. Verbena will continuously bloom all season long and are quite tolerant of drought, heat and humidity. They prefer full sun and moderately fertile, amply drained soil. Too much shade results in leggy plants with sparse flowering. Key features of this variety include mildew resistance, heat, frost, and drought tolerance, and no deadheading required.
