I love this flower. I planter mine last year in a raised planter. It came back this spring and is more beautiful than last year. I would recommend to anyone who loves flowers
Superbena Royale® Iced Cherry Verbena hybrid
FeaturesI have BEAUTY and BRAWN.
Superbena Royale verbenas are vigorous and mounded, but will trail over the sides of containers. They will function as both spillers and fillers in combination planters and are best planted at the front of landscape beds. Flower and umbel size are typical for verbena. They will bloom earlier in the season and more easily produceable in smaller containers than regular Superbena varieties.Award WinnerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingFall InterestHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryAttracts:ButterfliesResists:Deer

Superbena are our most vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant series. While always great in containers they are also fantastic in landscape beds. They can tolerate dry soils and lower fertility. Normally either an application of slow release fertilizer or amending with compost is enough to keep them happy and blooming in landscape beds. They shouldn't need to be trimmed back but can be given a "haircut" - a trim back - using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers. I usually give them a very slight trim as I am transplanting to boost branching.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.Superbena Royale® Iced Cherry Verbena hybrid 'INVEBROICH' USPP 23,218, Can 4,587

Third time growing but first time by itself in a rectangular planter. This plant has spread the entire 20 inches of the planter plus 4 more all around as it trails nicely outside the box. Ultimately it is a sea of intense deep pink/melon color with literally hundreds of bright flowers when in full bloom. I have noticed 2x this season for about a week each time there were almost no flowers. The plant remained strong and came back with even more blooms. Only minor trims are needed and that is more to "dead head" than anything else. While I do fertilize all of my plants I think verbena would do almost as well with just water and good soil. Only caveat which can happen anywhere...Japanese beetles have clustered on the plant a couple of times but seem to have backed off. Aphids don't seem interested. Highly recommend for the color, durability, low maintenance and longevity.Matthew Lamb, Maryland, United States, 7 years ago
