Homestead Purple Creeping Verbena

Blooms from April to November!

Blooms very early and often, from April to November! Attractive evergreen foliage with clusters of brilliant dark purple flowers held above the foliage. Very pest, drought, and disease resistant. A true Southern classic. Needs full sun, but other than that, it can be planted anywhere, including in hanging baskets and containers. Mature spreading clump is 18 in. tall by 24 in. wide. The finest of all perennial verbenas! Zones 7-10.
