Verbena Bonariensis - Verbena on a Stick


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.
