Verbena rigida ( Slender vervain ) moisture loving.
Verbena rigida ( Slender vervain ) is a low growing moisture loving perennial plant it has clusters of purple flowers on upright stems from summer to autumn. It is one of our favourite plants and can sometimes overlooked for the more well known plants but it is great to grow in groups to soften the edges of borders and will give you a beautiful display and an abundance colour. Also good in sunny gravel areas and wildlife gardens.
- Spreading bushy growth.
- Thrives in moist well drained soil in a sunny but sheltered well drained place in your garden.
- Good for attracting bees, beneficial insects, butterflies/moths and other pollinators.
- It is beneficial to protect during the winter months against frost using a mulch. It will become dormant and you will see the new growth start to develop in spring.
- Ultimate height 0.5 – 1 meter
- Ultimate spread 0.1 – 0.5 meter
- We ship all moisture plants bare root, this means that we wash all the soil off before packing plants ready for potting on or planting direct into their permanent position. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
