How to Plant and Grow Verbena

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Verbena bonariensis Seeds: Sow verbena seeds in 2 in. pots or cell packs, press into soil and barely cover. Needs darkness to germinate. Kept at 70° F., germination occurs within 4 weeks. Transplant seedlings into the garden 24 in. apart. Pinch back Verbena bonariensis seedlings at planting time to encourage bushiness.

Plant Verbena rigida Seeds: Sow verbena seeds in 2 in. pots or cell packs, press into soil and barely cover. Needs darkness to germinate. Kept at 70° F., germination occurs within 4 weeks. Transplant seedlings into the garden 12 to 18 in. apart.

Grow Verbena: Full sun. Plants tolerate heat and drought and are deer and rabbit resistant. Flowers attract hummingbird moths and hummingbirds. They rival butterfly bush flowers with their ability to attract butterflies, and verbenas will flower much longer, with lower maintenance.
