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.

A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

  • A rare find a Walmart of all places, was barely 3 inches tall but in pretty good shape at the outset.
    Planted in large pot with 5 other PW plants.

    This variety is a nice combination of spreader and mounder.
    Nice red color and the eye adds a nice flair.

    Like all superbena from PW, all this fella needs is water, regular fertilizer and loads of sun.
    Strong, sturdy branches and deep green leaves similar to other verbena suggest a long summer of growth and blooms.

    Recommend and I will buy again if I can find.

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