Description :

Tall summer stems

Also known as Argentinian vervain, Purple top or South American vervain, this tall Verbena produces high, stiff floral stems bearing clouds of mauve flowers.

Verbena bonariensis is scented and will attract a host of butterflies and other nectar lovers into your garden, to which it will add a touch of lightness and height to beds that often need this.

Ideas for accompanying plants (thanks to the nursery's Facebook community):

Les jardins de la Mansonnières: Verbena is marvellous with old roses as their flowers go well together. Unfortunately, it can very quickly get out of control! This photo is superb!

Watering can and secateurs: Yes, verbena is indispensable with roses. And it is superb in a bed of grasses. It's a perennial I love. Verbena has the good taste not to take up to too much space, growing around a rosebush or poking through grasses. It's a perennial with style!

Ingrid Leclercq: I have just planted it with gaura, Allium giganteum and Pennisetum villosum

Anne-Gaëlle: Very attractive, too, with Alcathea, as it harmonises with all their colours (salmon, pink, creamy yellow, etc.)

Bernadette Lebreton: "Verbena is also beautiful with orangey Hemerocallis".

Height: 150 cm.

Grow in ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry.

This perennial is short-lived, but re-seeds without fail, even after a harsh winter.
