Product Description

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 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.

Plant 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 potting on (“pricking out”), handle plugs carefully.
  • For plug plants in trays, push them out using a suitable small instrument through the hole in the bottom of each cell – e.g. a “dibber” or a pencil.
  • Pot on using our Windowsill planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry - they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • When planting out, grow in well-drained, moderately fertile soil in full sun. In cold areas, protect with a dry winter mulch.
  • 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.
