Verbena bonariensis

Verbena bonariensis

Common Name

Tall Verbena

Plant Description

This cheerful, easy-to-grow plant draws bees, butterflies, and songbirds into the garden all summer with its clusters of lilac purple flowers. Often used as a "see-through" plant in the landscape, it makes its way around the garden by reseeding. Its tall, wiry, flower-topped stems sway in the breeze but don't flop.
