Verbena on a Stick

Verbena bonariensis aka Vervain or Purpletop Vervain, a native to Brazil and Argentina. Once in the garden it will break to the outside of the planting area to reappear the following year to perform its best even if it is in the poorest soil in your yard.

Up close.

Verbena on a stick - as we call it here at the Antique Rose Emporium.

The butterflies love it, too.
