Verbena

Vervain

Our noteworthy offerings from this diverse genus feature captivating cool-colored summer-time flowers, coarsely toothed hairy foliage and tall 4-angled stems. Easily grown in average garden soil, they will delight you with months of bloom and a lighthearted presence.

Verbena hastata ‘Blue Spires’ full sun

This vigorous North American native grows upright, developing a dense, broad crown after a few seasons. The effect is almost candelabra-like, with tiny blue-violet blooms and deep purple bracts opening in an upward-moving whorl along branching flower spikes. The vibrant bicolored glow of the blossoms reflects the deep purple stems and brightens the pointed dark green opposite foliage.

For an arresting blend of forms, plant this Vervain with Helianthus ‘Gold Lace’ and Sesleria ‘Greenlee’.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 3'–4' high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
