Verbena ‘Little One’

Verbena bonariensis

Verbena bonariensis ‘Little One’ is characterized by upright habit, small overall size, coarsely textured, dark green foliage, and violet flowers. This new dwarf form grows to only 18 to 24 inches tall. Like the larger form, this plant has a long bloom period with pinkish-purple buds that open to pink flowers that later fade nearly to white atop thin squarish stems from spring through fall. A great plant for the front to middle planting of a border or wildflower meadow where it is sure to attract butterflies.
