Details

Verbena bonariensis 'Meteor Shower', is a great plant for adding vertical structure to flower beds and borders, or as a centerpiece in large containers. Clusters of violet-blue flowers adorn stiff, tall stems reaching about 30 inches tall. Butterflies adore this under-utilized plant and it is extremely heat tolerant. Provides continuous blooms all summer and fall. While the common name for this plant is Tall Verbena, 'Meteor Shower' is shorter than the original species.
