About This Plant
Sun; deciduous, with somewhat prickly stems, strongly pungent leaves, and a lanky habit. Orange vervain flowers attract butterflies throughout the warm season. Established plants require no supplemental irrigation. The fiery color resembles many non-native lantana varieties, but this species’ flowers are a little smaller and less profuse.
None required other than occasional light shaping; best pruned in late winter.
