Verbena Bonariensis

3 tall verbena May 23Verbena Bonarieniss

Vebena Brazilian verbena, Purpletop vervain, Purple top vervain

I am not sure if this is an annual or perennial in my garden. I think an annual, I know it is reseeding, but I like the way it shows up like it is dancing around the garden. Presumably it is a hardy perennial in USDA Zone 7, it may be coming back but most of the time I find small seedlings that I move around. The pink purple-purple flower clusters stand at the ends of the stems as if they are floating. This Verbena makes a great see-through plant. Give it full sun for full height drought tolerant it’s very tall about 4 feet and for that reason an elegant contrast wherever it comes up.
