One of my very favourite garden flowers is Verbena bonariensis and today’s blog post features some images of it growing at RHS Wisley in Surrey.
I’ve seen it appear in show gardens at RHS shows including the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show this year. It was in Coastal Drift in the Summer Gardens category.
And I captured it last year on a visit to Kew Gardens.
First and foremost, I’m a big fan of all shades of purple, so I love its blooms of little lilac florets. But what I also really like is its structure and how it towers above all the other plants in the flower bed.
And that’s why I’ve introduced it into our garden this year.
Here are some more images…
