Verbena ‘Homestead Purple’


Trailing Verbena

USDA Zone: 7-9

Plant number: 1.538.150


Tumbling and spreading in habit, this gorgeous Verbena produces clusters of rich purple flowers throughout the entire summer. Although not hardy over a wide area, many gardeners treat this as a long-blooming annual, better than any other variety for mildew tolerance. Performs equally well in cool or hot summer regions. Excellent for edging or rock gardens, but especially great in containers, baskets and window boxes. Clumps may be pruned hard in midsummer to rejuvenate the foliage and produce more flower buds. Drought tolerant once established. Attracts butterflies.
