Verbena bonariensis is a unique plant loved by fans of prairie-style planting and by butterflies and pollinators. The tall stiff stems tower gracefully above many other companion plants, growing up to 2m. They bear clusters of bright purple flowers through the summer months and well into September. If you’re looking for elegance and style when planting for wildlife, Verbena bonariensis is a must.
Sowing: can be started in 10cm pots in Feb under cover or windowsill.
