No garden, large or small should be without these hassle free plants which, once planted will self seed year after year
giving a wonderful show in your garden. Heat and drought tolerant, this is one of my favourite perennials in my wildflower
Verbena bonariensis - An erect, clump-forming tender perennial with stiff, widely branched stems, it can reach 3-6' in
height with an open, airy spread of 1-3'.
This outstanding perennial deserves its popularity. It makes an architectural statement with slender, willowy stems that
stand up to 6 feet tall and do not need staking. It then branches out widely near the top where rich lilac-purple flower
clusters stand alone, as if they are floating. This Verbena makes a great see-through plant.
This genus originates from South America, occurring in open, sunny sites. The flowers are long-blooming. Verbenas are
excellent for mixed herbaceous borders.
Provide moist, well-drained soil in full sun.
Verbena is a prolific self seeder, making up for its slightly tender nature even if the parent plant does not survive the
winter its space will be reliably filled by one of many seedlings that appear around the original.
It has been very successful in many challenging parts of a good many gardens, whether its a damp boggy area with very
poor drainage or a very dry exposed part of the border. Not only is it extremely reliable but the beautiful lilac flowers are
borne for a number of weeks throughout the mid summer into early autumn.
