Tukana® Scarlet Star Verbena hybrid
Early Spring through Fall Finish. Standard PPP.
For all sizes of containers, pinch the liner 1–2 weeks after transplant; for containers larger than 6” and for hanging baskets, trim around the edge of the container as needed prior to spacing or hanging of the baskets.
Sumagic at 5-10 ppm may be used to control growth. Growth can be controlled using lower temperatures.
General pest and disease practices as listed in notes. Powdery Mildew can be a problem for verbena. Proper air circulation, humidity control and water management will aid in control and prevention. A routine preventative spray program is encouraged. Red to purple spots can develop in lower light, cool temperatures and/or high pH situations. Maintain good fertilizer levels to avoid this problem.
Pseudomonas can cause purple leaf spots under cool, wet conditions. Preventative copper based fungicide applications are recommended when these conditions are present.
