Dunes in Bloom: Lilac Verbena

delete 1

For the month of November, our chosen plant of the month is Lilac Verbena. Lilac Verbena is an evergreen shrub with deeply divided green leaves and almost nonstop light purple flower heads that float 8 inches above the foliage. This native plant blooms most of the year with largest flowering season from early spring to late fall.

These plants do best in full-sun to part-shade and sandy to clay soil. For year around bloom, water once a month. Water less if planted in more clay soils.

Lilac verbena would be a welcome addition to any garden, you may also see that it is a popular destination for butterflies.
