Verbena canadensis 'Homestead Purple'

Rose Verbena, Clump Verbena, Rose Vervain, Glandularia Canadensis


Blooming its heart out from late spring to frost, Award-winning Verbena 'Homestead Purple' is one of the most popular trailing verbenas with its indefatigable clusters of rich, bright purple blossoms so useful at filling large areas of one's yard! The glossy, dark green foliage creates a lovely foil for the slightly fragrant purple flower heads.

  • Easy to grow, resilient to most pests and diseases, this low maintenance plant is also drought, heat, dry soil and rocky soil tolerant!
  • Growing up to 1 foot tall (30 cm) and vigorously spreading up to 3 feet wide (90 cm) via creeping stems rooting into the soil or mulch, this verbena is a tender perennial that is hardy to zone 6 but will need a good winter mulch. It is evergreen in zones 7 - 10 and may be grown as an annual in other climates.
  • Thriving in full sun, in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils, this plant will self seeds in ideal growing conditions. This plant does better in average to poor soil than in rich, moist garden soil. Excellent drainage is important!
  • It is a great candidate for borders or rock gardens and provides a stunning effect when planted en masse. Attractive as a ground cover, it is also perfect for edging, containers or hanging baskets.
