Searching Genus for VERBENA

The perennial species of this genus are primarily North American natives and provide a number of outstanding plants for the border.

VERBENA bonariensisLate Summer to Fall3617
Brazilian Verbena90cm
I am very fond of this tall verbena and include it in my garden most years. Clusters of deep purple-pink flowers appear at the ends of wiry stems. As their growth habit is tall and thin they are easy to intersperse among other earlier blooming perennials. Their architectural quality and late blooming habit are to be cherished. Hardy to Zone 6, otherwise start early for first year bloom and have it self-sow to perpetuate itself.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
