Verbena plants are normally very tolerant of heat and drought, but grow best if they are given plenty of water when they are actively growing, except V. hastata which requires constantly moist soil.
- Light Needs: Full Sun and Shade
- Watering Needs: Water regularly and thoroughly until your Verbenas are well established.
Verbenas are long blooming annual or perennial flowers that possess the virtues of heat tolerance and an extremely long bloom season. Many perennial verbenas are relatively short lived, but their vigor and heavy flowering make up for this defect. They do well grown as annual flowering plants also, since they bloom quickly during the first season after planting. Verbenas require a location that receives full sun throughout the day. They must have well-drained soil. They will not tolerate overcrowding with poor air circulation, shade or soil that stays overly moist. Most problems of verbenas occur in improper growing conditions.
