Product Details

Product Details

Bonariensis 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 annual, 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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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.

Buy once, have forever, if you wish

I bought a plant some years ago. They self-seed.
The coming year I edit the number and move them around. Great plant, butterflies attacted to them.

I love this plant! Just watch out - it can be weedy

I bought 6 verbena bonariensis plants from White Flower Farm in 2019. I now have an absolute jungle of verbena from May through September. It is a prolific reseeder and, though it isn't supposed to be perennial in my zone, most of the old plants survive our cold winters. I love the jungle-y look and combine it with bronze fennel for a pollinator's bonanza, but I do have to aggressively weed new sprouts during late spring otherwise it would take over the world. It is absolutely gorgeous and easy to take care of.

Healthy and large

These Verbena arrived healthy and big. I was very impressed with the careful delivery. I ordered 6 from Whiteflower Farms and 6 from another. What a difference! Whiteflower's were well packed, healthy, large and are thriving. Others are small, slow to grow and arrived a bit damaged. Thanks. Love these verbena!

Stunning and low maintenance

These are gorgeous. I planted them on a dry, sunny hill, together with some grasses. The flowers remained all summer and long into the fall, with no effort required at all. Just stunning!

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.

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.
