Verbena ‘Tapien® Blue Violet’ (Garden Verbena, Trailing Vervain, Trailing Verbena)
One of the tried and true perennials that landscape professionals turn to on a regular basis is Verbena ‘Tapien® Blue Violet’. This outstanding Verbena has a very prostrate growth habit and creates a deep green carpet covered with masses of violet-blue flowers. This is one showy groundcover and is perfect for filling in bare spots in the garden. It only grows 3-5 inches tall, but the multi-branched, finely cut foliage spreads up to 36 inches wide. It blooms from spring through first frost and attracts beneficial pollinators, including Hummingbirds, Bees & Butterflies.
‘Tapien® Blue Violet’ is a good choice as the “Spiller” component of a “Thiller, Filler, Spiller” mixed container. Its trailing habit causes it to cascade over the edges of hanging baskets, window boxes and retaining walls. This is a very easy plant to grow and does not require deadheading. It prefers full to partial sun and well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. The Sunset Climate Zones are 4-9, 12-24, H1, H2.
