Verbena 'Tapien'

Garden Verbena, Trailing Vervain, Trailing Verbena


Verbena 'Tapien' is a spectacular trailing Verbena which can be extremely useful for filling bare spots! It features a very attractive, airy, lacy, dark green foliage covered with profuse and showy flowers, creating an endless carpet of blossoms from summer to frost. Butterflies are most fond of the sweet flowers whose colors include blue-violet, pink, lavender, salmon and white.

  • Very flat-growing, 3-7 in. tall (7-17 cm) with a neat, multi-branching growth habit and vigorously spreading up to 36 in. wide (90 cm) via creeping stems rooting into the soil or mulch, this verbena is a tender perennial that is hardy to zone 8. Evergreen in zones 8 - 10, it may be grown as an annual in other climates.
  • Easy and fast growing, this undemanding plant is fairly drought tolerant and powdery mildew resistant.
  • Thrives in full sun or part shade, in fertile and well-drained soils.
  • Perfectly suited for use as ground covers, edging plants, containers and hanging baskets, from which their flower-laden stems cascade spectacularly.
  • No deadheading required. If becoming ragged in mid summer, shear them back to half their size. Regular fertilizer will boost flowering.
