Verbena bonarienssis or Verbena 'Buenos Aires' / Tuned Seeds

Verbena is a lovely garden plant. It has strong square stems with grey leaves and spikes of purple/violet flower heads all the way through the summer from June to October.  It grows to a height of 100 150cm and looks great in a country garden, wild flower garden or middle of a border.  These plants will attract butterflies into your garden.  They are good for including in flower arrangements.


Verbena prefers full sun and moist, well composted and well drained soil.  Plants self-seed in the right conditions.
