Verbena lilacina 'De La Mina'

De la mina verbena (Verbena lilacina 'De La Mina') is an adaptable, mounding perennial that produces mounds of delicate green foliage and stunning dark purple blossoms with lavender highlights. The blooms are lightly scented. Though more flowers are on the bush in spring, it blossoms throughout most of the year, making it a very attractive and versatile plant for any flower border, butterfly garden, or patio container. It grows fast to about 2 feet high and spreads to about 4 feet wide. It is evergreen but may be semi-deciduous in summer.
This shrub grows best in loamy, medium-draining soil but will tolerate clay soil provided it isn't over-watered. It uses little to very little water.
Our Habitat Garden currently has some great examples of this verbena.
