A longtime customer favorite in our trial gardens, this Verbena offers 2-inch balls of rich lavender. The blooms bob atop long, sturdy stems on plants 2 to 4 feet tall, blooming from early summer until frost in the sunny garden.
A species Verbena, this tender perennial offers months of garden color both from the big blooms and from the finely-cut dark green foliage. Good tolerance of heat and drought means even longer, more perfect bloom. Even though it tolerates dry soils, it really loves moist to wet conditions. And when it finds a place it likes, it self-sows freely!
Grown as an annual north of its hardiness range, V. bonariensis is a staple of the cottage garden, cutting garden, and meadow. It tolerates poor soils beautifully, asking only for good drainage and plenty of sunshine. The ideal addition to a wildflower garden! Perennial in zones 7-10. Packet is 100 seeds.
