    A stunning perennial. I don’t doubt this will become one of your firm favourites over the years. tall branching stems that flower from the bottom to the top which look like fairy lights tinkling away. Verbena has a long flowering season and low maintenance needs. Superb as a cut flower.

  • Notes from the garden

    ...

     

    Although this is called blue spires - expected more violet coloured flowers then baby blue!

     

    To encourage a bushier plant pinch once you have 3-4 sets of true leaves. Alternatively make your first harvest a deep cut.
