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.
