Verbena bonariensis

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").

Pot up Verbena bonariensis plants and grow them on in frost free conditions, for transplanting into borders later on. When all risk of frost has passed and plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant outdoors in a sheltered position in any moist, well drained soil in full sun.
Feed and water plants regularly until they are fully established. Verbena bonariensis flowers do not require dead heading. In autumn, apply a dry mulch of bark chips or straw to protect the crown of the plant throughout the winter months. Cut back the old stems when new shoots emerge at the base of the plant in spring.

  1. The most versatile perennial

    By Tessa Bishopp 02-09-2015

    The Verbena bonariensis blooms in Summer right through to late Autumn and despite growing up to 2 metres in one year, doesn't block out plants behind it due to it's narrow habit. Lovely purple flashes of colour which fit in to any garden style, cottage and meadow alike. The butterflies & bees love it too. Easy to take cuttings from but self seeds too. Cut right down in early February and it'll spring right back, perfect for a low maintenance garden.
