|Ease of care, drought tolerance, and a long blooming season make perennial Verbenas a favorite in areas with plenty of sun and heat. In warm climates, they spread and naturalize. Cold climate gardeners grow them as annuals. Most flowers are purple, but they also come in red, white, pink and lavender. Plant in parking strips, along sides of driveways, in rock crevices and on dry banks and walls. Set 2 feet apart for ground cover, as Verbena spreads quickly. Sold in cell packs or larger containers throughout the growing season.
Grown for its many, long-blooming lavender flowers, it may become invasive. Use in wild gardens, parking strips or in containers. Other flower colors include white and purple.
