  • Love the leaves! I'm allergic to the fuzz on the other verbena
    I planted 10" hanging baskets in part sun with some silvery licorice plants. they were gorgeous especially in the evening light. They bloomed more steadily than the off/on of the other verbena

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Our landscaper purchased this plant to put in the front . It spreads beautifully and has received many compliments. It is shown as an annual, but living here in California it seems to have survived our drought situation and started to re bloom for another year. I'm purchasing additional 4 plants so that I can replant in the spots that have not survived. The color is beautiful and many people walking by have complimented this plant.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
