Lavender-pink 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. Allow to self sow and these Lollipops will fill a border.

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.
