MORE INFORMATION

A tall, award-winning perennial with erect, branching stems, Verbena bonariensis is a well-loved garden plant deserving a place in every garden so long as there is border space to plant it.

Tightly packed clusters of small, purple flowers are produced in abundance and carried on tall, willowy stems from summer to autumn, adding a sophisticated grace to planting schemes.

Also known as Argentinian vervain, it is one of the longest-lasting plants in the garden, with flower heads persisting right into the depths of winter, providing much needed interest.

Ideal as a filler in borders, it is 'transparent', allowing other plants to shine through, and one of the best plants around to add structure to the border and attract a host of pollinating insects to the garden - probably why garden designers love it so much.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come. It has lso been recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' because the flowers are produced through the spring and summer and are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

As an added bonus, this verbena seeds freely so, once established you're guaranteed a plentiful source of free plants!

Supplied as three established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Leave faded flower heads on the plant over winter, to provide structure in the garden as well as shelter for hibernating insects.

Care Guide

  • When planting, grow in well-drained, moderately fertile soil in full sun.
  • Dig a hole that is slightly deeper than the supplied pot, and three times the width.
  • Remove the plant from the pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place in the hole at the same level of the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in around the hole with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well, before adding mulch to the base.
  • Any potted or container Verbena needs to be watered regularly to avoid the compost for drying out. Hot weather requires daily watering. Avoid wetting the leaves as this can cause some fungal disease. 
  • Apply mulch to the surrounding soil to help hold in moisture.
  • Verbena bonariensis can suffer dieback in harsh winters if cut back in autumn, so it's best to leave the plant until spring and cut back the old growth when you see the new shoots emerging at the base.
