Verbena bonariensis

April 2013
Daily Mail;4/ 1/2013, p55
This elegant perennial has recently enjoyed a revival of interest. Tightly packed clusters of lilac-purple fl owers on tall stems last longer than any other perennial in the garden, from June through to October. Despite its height (2m) it can be used anywhere in the border dues to its low density foliage. Ideally suited to a sunny, sheltered spot in any well drained soil. Hardy, over-wintered 6cm module grown plants supplied.
