Verbena bonariensis was very slow to grow once germinated, but having seen it floating whimsically above other flowers in other gardens, I gave it a chance. This particular strain of seeds produced flowers that could barely be seen. They were practically without petals, and the color was drab and visually receding. This Verbena has a reputation for reseeding, so I have pulled them all up, not wanting seed to germinate in the coming years. If any do germinate in the garden, I will consider them a **** and compost them pronto. It looks like a **** in the garden anyway. If you like Verbena bonariensis, look for a different strain than this one.
They are quite tall - about 4 feet with the smallest head of flowers. They don't look anything like the photo here. its too bad your site doesn't allow posting photos with the reviews. I think it would be useful when ordering seeds to see photos and reviews.

The flat remains in our greenhouse but the germination has been very poor so far,
So far, so good. My plants are only about 3 inches tall, but they came up very well. Can't wait to see how it looks when it blooms.
