Every petal on every bloom in every rounded cluster of flowers is unique on Obsession Twister! The tiny florets shade from white to pink to light red, creating an abstract wash of colors that is simply irresistible! There's no other annual like it in garden or pot, and Twister keeps blooming month after month in the sun!

This annual has already won Europe's highest honor for a flowering plant from seed: the Fleuroselect Novelty Award. And although it's a novelty, it's also much more: a very reliable performer even in humid, rainy, and dry climates, as well as a pollinator magnet that offers nectar during the valuable mid-spring and mid-fall seasons, when many flowers aren't in bloom and butterflies may be searching in vain for food sources.

Open-pollinated and very, very easy to grow from seed, Obsession Twister reaches just 6 to 8 inches high and wide. This is a great choice even for a small container: a pop of unexpected, unpredictable color that just won't quit! It's also a good companion to others in a combo container or lively annual bed. Set it among your vegetable plants, too -- it's compact enough to tuck among the tomatoes, peppers, and squash for a valuable pollinator attractant and pest repellent in one!

Unlike many Verbena varieties, Obsession Twister stands up effortlessly to powdery mildew. If you live in a climate where high humidity or frequent summer rainstorms can turn annuals into puddles, you'll love how Obsession Twister bounces back. And if you live in a dry climate, never fear -- Obsession Twister will hang on if you're a bit late with the watering can!

Best in full sun and well-drained soil, Obsession Twister blooms most heavily and best if watered and fed regularly, though it can withstand much hardship. It is open pollinated, so you can let it go to seed if you like. Although a compact plant, it works very well in a mass planting, such as on a slope or other area needing protection from erosion. In the sunny annual bed or foundation, it serves as a fine foreground planting to larger flowering plants and shrubs. It makes a good spring bulb cover-up too, leafing out and beginning to bud just as the last of the flowering bulbs are passing. Find even more ways to use this long-blooming, hardworking sun lover!
