Verbena ‘Dark Purple’
Dark Purple Verbena
12″ x 24″ Verbena is a terrific ground cover perennial. This selection has a more tight mounding habit and makes it perfect for front of the border. Verbena flower on the tips of new growth, so the trick for more flowers is to trim back the spent flowers, fertilize and enjoy another flowering cycle. Dark Purple is as its name suggests with beautiful clusters of dark purple flowers.
Some Verbena are mildew prone, so if you see this start spraying with horticultural oil or Actinovate as per Dahlia’s.
