Verbena has an airy and see through appearance making it an ideal plant in any location in the border, with clusters of purple flowers at the tip each branched stem. It is attractive to bees and wildlife.
Tightly packed clusters of lilac-purple flowers top the tall branching stems from June to September. This stylish perennial has been enjoying a resurgence of interest in recent years. It is perfect for a sheltered, sunny spot with well-drained soil and its open, transparent shape means that it can easily be used at the front, middle or back of the border.
