Finesse® Verbena Seeds

(P) Pkt of 100 seeds
Item #02045-PK-P1


Bright lavender pompons for quick, easy color | Perfect in poor soils

A longtime customer favorite in our trial gardens, this Finesse® Verbena bonariensis offers 2-inch balls of rich lavender. The blooms bob atop long, sturdy stems on plants 2 to 4 feet tall, blooming from early summer until frost in the sunny garden.

Finesse® Verbena bonariensis, this tender perennial offers months of garden color both from the big blooms and from the finely-cut dark green foliage. Good tolerance of heat and drought means even longer, more perfect bloom. Even though it tolerates dry soils, it really loves moist to wet conditions. And when Finesse® Verbena bonariensis finds a place it likes, it self-sows freely.

Grown as an annual north of its hardiness range, Finesse® Verbena bonariensis is a staple of the cottage garden, cutting garden, and meadow. It tolerates poor soils beautifully, asking only for good drainage and plenty of sunshine. The ideal addition to a wildflower garden. Perennial in zones 7-10.

Beautiful but Invasive

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased seeds, put them in little containers once they grew and it was warm I put them in the ground. They are beautiful but the seeds can go flying through the air and you will have them everywhere. I live in the county so it is not a big deal but if you have close neighbors they may go onto their land. Easy to grow from seed.

My newest favorite!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I'm always looking for something a little different, but I still love the old fashioned flowers. I was looking for something to compliment my garden. I started these from seed and I like them so well, now I look for something to compliment them! Tall and natural looking, the many small clusters make a huge impact. Beautiful!

Doing well so far

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Good germination, and all 6 plants I set out are growing well, even those last, pot-bound ones. They have been blooming for a month+ now. The plants branch out quite a bit, and each side branch also blooms. They may fill out more, but I suspect to get the density of flowers in the photo, you may need to plant a bit closer together than recommended. So far, popular with carpenter bees, smaller flies, and a few butterflies and moths. But no honeybees, despite 2 hives in the yard!

Buy here for best deal

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, this was not the first site I visited, and I bought a pack of Verbena Bonariensis at another website for double the cost! If I had seen that this company offered those seeds, in addition to the others that I was looking for, I would have bought them here first. Lesson learned.
