Bursts of airy flowers support many varieties of butterflies and other beneficial pollinators. Smaller in stature and lighter in color than the straight species. Late season, nectar-rich blooms are welcomed by migrators before their travels. Self seeds readily, treat as an annual in the North. Be sure to let seeds drop to enjoy a new crop of beautiful plants to fill a border the next growing season. The clustered blooms of Verbena bonariensis Lollipop are a great addition to cut-flower bouquets. The airy swaying stems topped with lollipop-like spheres are lovely when planted en masse.
