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.

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.
