Sprinkled with creamy yellow and pink blooms, it brings not only a whimsical element to the garden but also hummingbirds and butterflies.
Beautiful and heat tolerant, the red flowers of Verbena grow all season whether they are in the flower beds or garden containers. Their saturated color is a stand out along borders and pathways.
