Verbena rigida

Verbena rigida

Violet purple flowers are displayed for months in low branching umbels. These are subtended by bristly pleated leaves. Great amongst perennials, and perfect scrambling under shrubs in parched and tired soil. Withstanding dry, sun scorched and windswept conditions, this vervain is as tough as it is beautiful.

Verbena rigida

The intense purple flowers are rich in nectar and attract honeybees. Also known as Slender Vervain or Sandpaper verbena, Verbena rigida is much like a miniature version of Verbena bonariensis and has the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
How to grow

Highly vigorous and readily self-seeds and can spread through underground rhizomes. Can be invasive. Incredibly hardy and drought - tolerant. Remove spent flowers regularly to prevent seed spreading and prune to the ground when flowering finishes in autumn. Not suitable near bushland or pasture.
