About This Plant

Full sun. A native herbaceous perennial blooming throughout the warm season and sometimes in winter. The rounded purple flower clusters and highly divided leaves are distinctive. Verbena is tough and can cover fields and hillsides in spring. In a landscape setting, give it good drainage and a full 8-hour summer sun. Shear it as needed to prompt a new flush of flowers. Don’t pamper verbena with too much water, or it will develop powdery mildew.

Maintenance

Cut back to encourage re-bloom and denser growth.
