Description

This unusual and much revered verbena was discovered in a public garden in Bampton, Devon.

Like the native Vervain in style, with an open airy habit and long blooming lavender-pink flower spikes but the stand out feature of this is its long wiry stems and tiny serrated leaves, flushed with a purple sheen as it emerges from a tight evergreen crown in Spring.

Care Tips

Tolerant of poor soil and drought. A very hardy and resilient plant. Cut back stems after flowering unless you wish for it to self-seed. Seedlings may not develop such intensely-coloured foliage so best propagated from cuttings or division in spring
