Verbena bonariensis (Large Plant)

Glandularia, Verbena patagonica

Hardy Perennial

Tightly clustered florets form glowing lavender flower heads that float atop stiffly upright, branching stems. The long lasting blooms of Verbena bonariensis attract clouds of bees and butterflies. This perennial verbena has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years, associating beautifully with grasses for a tranquil planting scheme, or adding a touch of architectural style to the back of herbaceous borders. This elegant perennial is at its most effective when planted in large swathes. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 45cm (18").

  1. Vibrant Verbena

    By Christine Melvin 15-08-2016

    I brought 2 potted Verbena bonariensis in the spring for the border. I had always admired it in show gardens and walled gardens in the past, so thought I would get some for our garden. We have been amazed by the strength and structure of this plant. It has grown to it's full height and the vibrant violet blooms are beautiful and long lasting. We will be adding more to the border next year, due to it's success. I would say it's a definite buy for any border. Fabulous !
