Verbena Bonariensis is a perennial plant that flowers in late summer to mid-autumn. It has tall, architectural stems with sparse leaves, crowned by flattish heads of lavender-purple flowers.
This is a wonderful plant for bringing height to the border and its airy structure allows you to see through to the plants behind. It also works well in prairie style planting surrounded by ornamental grasses. The seed heads are attractive and add autumn and winter interest to the garden. This plant is also very attractive to bees and butterflies making it perfect for a wildlife garden. It often self-seeds producing lots of new plants each year and the cut flowers make a long lasting pretty addition to an arrangement.
This guide will explain how to grow and care for your Verbena Bonariensis as well as how to deal with any problems you may encounter.
