Verbena Bonariensis – Verbena on a Stick

September 4, 2016

Verbena Bonariensis is tall and airy and one of my fave flowers.

It blooms like crazy all summer into fall. I plant it next to walls and fences for a stunning effect. Here I mixed it with white cosmos – purple and white is such a great garden combination.

The lavender clusters are held high on wiry stems that wave in the breeze from mid summer to frost.

Called “verbena on a stick”, it is a hummingbird magnet and is an easy flower to grow.

It prefers full sun in well-drained soil. Remove top 1/4 of plant periodically to force new buds.
