A tall and slender-stemmed perennial. It can grow to 180 cm tall and can spread to 90cm wide. At maturity, it will develop a woody base. Fragrant lavender to rose-purple flowers are in tight clusters located on terminal and axillary stems, blooming from mid-summer until autumn frost. It’s perfect for bringing height to an ornamental border and also works well in prairie-style planting schemes with ornamental grasses. Grow Verbena bonariensis in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Given the right conditions, plants will self-seed freely. Leave dead stalks to provide winter interest and mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost.
Excellent cut flower.
