Description

We fell on this in the trials last summer — absolutely covered in flowers, with pretty pompom blooms. Coral when individual flowers open, fading to gentle salmon-pink with rich crimson centres, to prevent them being too sweet. This verbena steals the show and does so reliably from June right through autumn.

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.
