How to Grow Verbena Flower Plants

Annual

Good looking and fragrant, easy to grow Verbena are natives of Great Britain. These drought-resistant, old-fashioned flowers, sit atop fern-like foliage.

Verbena plants produce large, brilliant blooms in shades of deep violet, lavender, red, pink, cream and white, some with flirty little eyes. Flowers bloom from mid-summer to fall.

Verbena looks great in flower beds, window boxes, rock gardens and containers. Try growing Verena as a ground cover, too.

Plant Height: Small, but luscious, most varieties of these bushy plants grow only 8-12 in. tall, spreading out two feet or more. There are a handful of larger varieties of Verbena that grow 3-4 feet.


Plant Propagation:

Verbena are grown from seed, but do not germinate easily. We recommend use of a propagation mat to improve germination rates. Start Verbena seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost in your area. Or, you can buy young plants at garden stores in the spring.

Space plants 1 1/2 to 2 feet apart and allow them to spread, filling in open areas.

Days to Germination: 15 - 25


How to Grow Verbena Plants:

Verbena  plants like full to partial sun. They will grow well in average soils. The soil should drain well. Add a general purpose fertilizer before planting , especially if the soil is poor.

Once the plants are established, they require little care and will spread out to cover the flower bed space you allotted for them.

Verbena are heat and drought tolerant.

Flowers Bloom: Summer and Fall.


Insect and Disease:

Insect and disease problems are not too common. If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide.
