About Verbena

Though Argentinian in origin, Verbenas are a brilliant addition to any classical English garden or for those who are looking for some elegant late-summer colour. Their tall, elegant stems are covered in clusters of tiny purple flowers and are the ideal flowering plant to help bring structure and colour to your space - without taking up too much room and thanks to their long bloom time, their pollen helps to sustain bees and butterflies into the autumn.


Current plant heights including plastic pots: 
Little Verbena: 30-35cm 
Big Verbena: 80-100cm

Dense clusters of purple-lilac flowers come into flower between June-September.


Verbena prefers a bright, sunlit spot.


Gusty winds so make sure Verbena is placed in a nicely sheltered position.
