Verbena

Verbena

Good looking and fragrant, Verbena are drought-resistant, old-fashioned flowers. Verbena produce large, brilliant blooms in shades of deep violet, lavender, red, pink, cream and white, some with flirty little eyes. Flowers bloom from mid-summer to fall. Verbena looks great in flower beds, window boxes, rock gardens and containers. They make good ground cover, too. Small, but luscious, most varieties of these bushy plants grow only 8-12 in. tall, but spread out two feet or more. Note, a few varieties grow 3-4 feet. Verbena plants like full to partial sun. They will grow well in average soils. The soil should drain well. Add a general purpose fertilizer before planting , especially if the soil is poor. Once the plants are established, they require little care and will spread out to cover the flower bed space you allotted for them.
