Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Generally pest and disease free

Water lightly

Water once a week in hot weather, watering at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage.

Full Sun

Plant somewhere the plant will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.

Any moist, well-drained soil

Verbenas do well in any moist, well-drained soil. If your soil is particularly clay-heavy and/or often becomes waterlogged then you can improve the drainage by adding in plenty of organic matter such as garden compost as well as some perlite or gravel.

Feeding not required

Verbena does not need feeding, but would benefit from a dep, dry mulch in winter. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
