Verbena rigida ‘Santos’ full sun  new plant

Perched on stiff tribranched candelabra-style stems, small dense clusters of electric purple flowers work tirelessly from late spring ’til early autumn, delighting pollinators and plant enthusiasts. Attractive rough-surfaced dark greenery—oblong and toothed—loosely cloaks the upright bushy habit that endures heat, drought and most pests. A somewhat tender, low growing perennial, ‘Santos’ craves sun and good drainage, fits easily into smaller gardens or containers plus makes a dazzling companion for Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ and Crocosmia ‘John Boots’.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
