Product Details

Product Details
This species offers a completely different look in Verbenas. It carries 2–3" clusters of pinkish purple blooms on wiry, self-supporting stems. The dark green leaves are very narrow and very sparse, so the plants are remarkably light and airy. They can be put at the front of the border without blocking the plants behind. Plant in groups to create a lilac haze, or scatter here and there to provide color through the dog days. Even mature gardens can accommodate this upright, narrow plant, which reseeds itself to create pleasant surprises the following year. A first-rate cut flower.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Beautiful tall summer flowers

Bought 3 plants this spring and planted them in 3 different gardens. Plants arrived healthy , grew quickly now almost 6 feet tall. They are flowering a beautiful shade of purple and sway in the breeze without bending or drooping. Perfect backdrop for other summer flowers.

Incredible Plants

WFF has done it again ..... they sent me 6 gorgeous, healthy Verbena bonariensis plants packaged perfectly. They also shipped me 3 of the tallest, strongest Salvia Amistad that I have ever seen. I have ordered from WFF in the past and have always been pleased BUT THIS YEAR they surpassed all of my expectations. The size and quality of these plants is far beyond anything they have shipped me in prior years and the packaging was superb.

Goldfinches love it

My favorite feature of this plant is that the goldfinches love it. I love seeing their bright yellow bodies perched atop the purple cloud of this verbena as they eat the seed of it. It is a lovely feast for the eyes. It seems like the plant could not support a bird since it looks delicate, but I have seen as many a four birds on one plant (4 different stems, of course). When I have unexpectedly rounded the corner and surprised both the birds (and myself), it is magical to see a flock of yellow take off from the purple patch of verbena.

Verbena Bonariensis

I love this verbena. I planted it among my dahlias. It gave me color while I was waiting for the dahlias to bloom. It mingled beautifully with them.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ver-bee'nuh  

These vigorous plants have been popular with southern gardeners for a long time. Their abundant blooms are unaffected by the kind of intense heat that leaves lesser plants gasping on the ground. Plants are long-blooming, flowering continuously from late spring into fall. Ideal for edging a walk or filling containers.

Verbena is a relatively carefree plant. Just give them full sun and plant in average garden soil. To keep the color coming, remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom.
