Description

Airy, puffy clouds of purple through much of summer and autumn, standing about 4 feet tall.

Unlike Verbena bonariensis this is a true perennial and won't self-seed, scattering itself too prolifically in any tiny space it can find.

Care Tips

Generally pest and disease free. Protect plants in winter with a dry winter mulch around the crown. In the right conditions plants will self seed.
