Description / Verbena 'Homestead Purple' Vervain

Verbena 'Homestead Purple' Vervain, a tender perennial, is usually grown as an annual. Blooming generously from late spring until the first frost, this plant is adorned with clusters of tiny, vibrant purple flowers that sit on top of slender yet sturdy green stems, giving the plant a light and airy aspect. Subtly scented, the flowers attract bees and butterflies to the garden but also make delightful, long-lasting additions to floral arrangements.

A Verbena canadensis variety, also known as rose verbena, clump verbena, or rose vervain, 'Homestead Purple' displays a bushy growth habit and spreads vigorously, filling large areas quickly by rooting at the nodes. Given optimal conditions, the plant may self-seed if not deadheaded. This verbena is ideal for mass planting as a ground cover in beds and borders, especially in a pollinator-friendly garden. It also makes a striking specimen plant for containers or hanging baskets.

Verbena thrives in sunny to partially sunny spots and prefers moist, well-drained soil. However, it's adaptable to a range of soil types, including clay, loam, sand, and shallow rocky soils. This plant is resilient in hot, dry conditions and is rarely troubled by diseases or pests. A winter mulch may enhance its performance.

As a native North American plant, the verbena is not only visually appealing but also environmentally beneficial. Being naturally adapted to regional climate and soil conditions, these plants flourish without the need for extra watering or fertilizers. They also contribute to natural pest control, reducing the need for pesticides. Incorporating native plants into your garden promotes biodiversity and offers quality shelter and food for wildlife and pollinators, bringing a vibrant burst of life to your garden.
