Verbenas are guaranteed to add some summer sparkle to your garden and bring in the bees and the butterflies. They are drought-resistant, tolerating full to partial sun, and enjoy well-drained soils. Although some species and hybrids are not hardy and are treated as half-hardy annuals in bedding schemes


Relatively easy to care for, just cut back plants in the autumn and mulch with a layer of bark chippings or leaf matter. Ensure that the plant has good drainage. Half-hardy annuals will need to be moved to a frost-free location to try and ensure they survive through the winter.
