Three new varieties have joined the verbena Superbena line-up from Proven Winners this year: ‘Superbena Royale Plum Wine,’ ‘Superbena Royale Whitecap’ and ‘Superbena Violet Ice.’ See photos of all three in the slideshow below.

The early compact habit of the Royale series makes it great for container production, but it still becomes a vigorous, spreading plant for the consumer. Superb shelf life, yet strong garden performance helps Royale varieties really stand out.

Verbena ‘Superbena Royale Plum Wine’ features reddish-purple blooms and is early to bloom in week nine. It has the strong disease resistance and vigor growers expect from the Royale series and will reach a height of 8 to 12 inches and will spread to 12 to 24 inches in full sun.

Verbena ‘Superbena Royale Whitecap’ has pure white blooms and is early to bloom in week nine. It has strong disease resistance and better powdery mildew resistance than ‘Babylon White.’ It will reach a height of 6 to 12 inches and will spread 24 to 30 inches in full sun.

Verbena ‘Superbena Violet Ice’ features soft violet blooms with a distinctive eye add a new coloration to the Superbena series of verbena. This variety boasts extremely large flowers, has exceptional powdery mildew resistance and is early to bloom in week nine. It is heat tolerant, too, and will attract butterflies. Expect a height of 8 to 12 inches and a spread of 24 to 30 inches in full sun.
