Enjoy the pretty flowers and lacy foliage of this semi- trailing verbena. This fabulous colour mix produces long lasting blooms on drought tolerant plants that make a lovely addition to any garden. With a relaxed spreading habit, Verbena tenuisecta 'Desert Jewels Mixed' looks sensational spilling from baskets and containers or tumbling through borders and rockeries. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Sow Verbena from February to April on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag, maintaining a temperature of 24-27C (75-81F) until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into trays or 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise Verbena plants to outdoor conditions prior to transplanting them outdoors in any well drained soil in full sun. Plant Verbena at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.
