Verbena Bonariensis 'Lollipop'


Verbena Bonariensis 'Lollipop' (Verbena Bonariensis)

I love VB but it never overwinters here. This version is a new introduction..much shorter and supposedly much hardier. I'll let you know!

I think it's Hayloft that are selling this..pretty sure that's where I got mine.

Lovely Karen......I've been lucky here, had new ones springing up in all the cracks and crevises.....

Not grown this small one, they are coming up all over the place at the moment.

Like you, I love this and the way it floats above everything. But also, like you, I can never keep it, so it will be interesting to see if this one survives?

I have actually managed to keep a VB only the third year of attempting. Bit weak and floppy but it is growing in fact two plants survived. I must try this one if it is a shorter variety. Really do love them and so do the bees.

Yes, I have high hopes for it. I think it grows to about 1m.

I haven't been able to keep it either! This looks good.

Thanks Melchi. I saw it in Dob****s GC yesterday, so it must be freely available now.
