A reasonably hardy perennial if kept in free draining borders. With great height and self seeding habit this verbena brings a wealth of purple flowers and pollinating insects.
Superb structural plant. Excellent in the Summer garden but in the Autumn/Winter months once the flowers are finished, the frosts will give you a different
perspective. The seed heads also provide a home for insects during the winter.
