Commonly known as the Hardy Garden Verbena, Verbena rigida is a perennial, however, it is often grown as an annual. On branched stems with green oblong leaves, clusters of purple, fragrant flowers appear throughout the summer months. 

Providing the soil is not waterlogged, this Verbena will be extremely happy in any soil. It does require a sunny spot though, making it perfect for south facing borders. Great for edging pathways and borders, Verbena rigida will self-seed freely so, if you wish to avoid this, ensure you remove the spent flowerheads.

Available for Mail Order from April - August
