Description

A lovely bright rich pink verbena which is grown in the urns and pots at Sissinghurst.

Trailing verbenas are one of the best ever plants for classy containers. This pink verbena has good mildew resistance. If you deadhead it, it will give you flowers from May until the frosts, or until Christmas or longer in a conservatory or greenhouse.

Care Tips

Verbena plants grow best when they get 8 to 10 hours of direct sunlight. If not then they can be prone to developing powdery mildew. Once planted feed them and continue monthly for the rest of the growing season.
