Proven Winners Superbena® Series:
Verbena flowers have been grown for generations and have a certain vintage appeal to them. Unfortunately, older verbenas were often plagued by powdery mildew which turned their foliage white and hampered their blooms from forming. Then along came Superbena® verbena to save the day! Proven Winners has spent many years perfecting the disease resistance and strong flowering performance of Superbena® verbena. You can be confident they’ll grow and bloom beautifully for you from spring into fall without having to remove the spent blossoms. They’re easy too, since they don’t need quite as much water or food as some annuals. Superbenas® grow well in hanging baskets, patio containers and landscapes. Expect them to have a mounding habit in spring but a more spreading or trailing shape as they mature through the summer. Sun is what generates energy in plants, so the more sun they get, the stronger the plants will grow and the more flowers they will produce.
