Unfortunately these seeds grew into Verbena Rigida! However, the team has kindly replaced with a new pack, fingers crossed.

Very healthy plant . It has only one seem, do I simply cut it back a little after flowering to encourage other stems?

It is hardy in my garden in East Devon. Coming up from beneath ground to hopefully keep going all summer again. I think we only had about 3 hard frosts this winter.
