Verbena bonariensis 9cm Verbena Bonariensis
Verbena - 9 cm
Verbena bonariensis is one of the most popular of all perennials among today's gardeners, with tall, wiry stems topped by clusters of small, lavender-purple flowers from July right through to the frosts. Highly attractive to bees and butterflies. A tall plant you can see through, so can be planted anywhere in the border. Short-lived, but seeds around freely. Good cut flower.
Height and spread 1.5 - 2m x 45cm (5-6ft x 18in). Plant in ordinary well-drained soil, in a sunny position. Cut down to basal rosette in late autumn. In cold areas, protect with dry mulch in winter.
This plant has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
