Verbena 'Seabrook's Lavender' From Aris Horticultural Services
July 26, 2011
This handsome variety from Blooms of Bressingham is smothered with clusters of lavender flowers with a darker lavender eye. Plants are very floriferous and long flowering, from June until late September, with a low growing and spreading habit. Ideal for borders or patio pots, it is easy to care for and can withstand drought conditions. Place in full sun. 'Seabrook's Lavender' is a tender perennial (hardy in Zones 8 to 10). Lovely grown or mixed with verbena 'Homestead Purple,' plants reach a height of 3 inches and spread to a width of 22 inches the first year. The plant was discovered by UK gardening journalist and broadcaster Peter Seabrook in his Essex garden, where he has grown it for 13 years.
