Verbena - Homestead Purple 140mm Pot

Verbena Homestead Purple

Description of plant at maturity:
A trailing, ground covering perennial which produces a dazzling display of vibrant, rich purple flower heads larger than those normally belonging to this family. The softly fragrant flowers are borne throughout the warmer months and continue on into autumn.
V. ''Homestead Purple'' is a particularly hardy cultivar withstanding dry, warm conditions up to 35 C as well as cold down to -5 C. An additional bonus to impatient gardeners, or those trying to establish a new garden, is the fast pace at which ''Homestead Purple'' will establish and spread to form a very attractive carpet of foliage. Butterfly attracting.

A hardy plant which once established requires little to no maintenance. Select a sunny to part shade location in any well drained soil. Pruning is not required although a light trim after a main flowering flush will encourage further displays. A fairly drought tolerant plant but as with most plants to keep foliage dense and fresh looking a deep watering should be given during an extended period of dry weather. A light application of slow release fertiliser during early spring will be beneficial to overall performance. More applications than this may result in more foliage being produced than flowers.

A very useful landscaping plant for both practical and aesthetic reasons. The long display of colour makes this a favourite plant for edging around garden beds or cascading from retaining walls and rockeries. They can be used as a ground covers for low maintenance areas whilst small groups of plants can be used between shrubs and perennials in the garden to act as an attractive ''fill in'' for bare patches as well as shading out weeds.
