Verbena General Information

Verbena are prolific bloomers! Only a week of upper 90 degree heat has ever stopped this informal plant from flowering. The next week it was back to its showy self. Makes a mat of dark green, dissected leaves on stems that sprawl and spread and are covered all season long with bright flower clusters from May to season's end. Overwinter a few cuttings inside in the north. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Verbena Plant Care

Prefers full sun in well-drained soil. Must cut back spent blossoms to encourage new blooms. Remove top 1/4 of plant periodically to force new buds. Plants will have a sprawling habit which can be trained into a more compact shape through regular pruning.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
