Verbena bonariensis
Common Name: Brazilian Verbena Family: Verbenaceae (The Verbena Family)

Verbena bonariensis
Zoom In Photo:

A summer stalwart with stiff upright clumps of branching stems topped with vivid lilac purple flowers beginning in midsummer until hard frost. Very heat tolerant. Let it self-seed to ensure next year's display. This is a great 'see through' plant. Be daring and try it near the front of the bed. You'll be able to see past the airy stems to the other plants beyond while giving the illusion of depth.
