Plant Families / Verbena
Verbenas are long blooming annual or perennial flowers that reward gardeners with countless clusters of small blooms from spring to frost. Many perennial verbenas are relatively short lived, but their vigor and profuse flowering make up for this shortcoming. They do well grown as annual flowering plants also, since they bloom quickly during the first season after planting. Fairly drought and heat tolerant, verbenas are a great choice for beds and borders, rock gardens, planting in cracks between stones, and containers.
