Common Garden Verbenaa (Verbena hortensis) are gaining in popularity.
I guess the reason is that they come in many colors and are extremely easy to grow.
Bought mine simply because of the stunning red color it has.
It has been a cool and cold spring up here in the north. Now all the snow is finally gone and the lake is free of ice. The crocuses just started to bloom few days ago but we still have below zero nights.
Luckily that does not prevent me from buying flowers to the balcony. Was not able resist the temptation and bought few verbenas. Hope they make through the nights and survive the bite of cold they are going to face.
Have always admired the verbenas my mom have had. The flower can tolerate heat well and blooms the whole summer. Colors they have are bright and many and I might be able to enjoy the blooms next half of the year.
Now I just wait impatiently that I can plant more delegate flowers. Still few weeks to go for that.
