Verbena - Tall Purple Top (Verbena bonariensis) A very attractive tall growing free-flowering annual in most regions of Canada. Considered a perennial in Zones 7b and up. Introduced to England from South America in the early 1700's. Butterflies and bees will find this species quite easily with its highly visible clusters of violet flowers, born on rounded heads that appear almost opaque at certain light levels. Blooming continuously until late fall freezes, the narrow dark green leaves are  also persistent well into fall. Stems are rigid and virtually leafless on the first 2 feet allowing a good opportunity for understory plantings. Very simply, a must-have annual that self sows for a  prolonged yearly show.

Growing Information: Start indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost. Cover seed lightly with growing medium. Seeds are slow to germinate and very sensitive to excess moisture, so keep  your growing medium on the dry side until seedlings emerge. Adding bottom heat over night will also increase germination. Harden off and transplant outside after the last  spring frost. Can be direct seeded after last frost, however, transplant is recommended.
