Verbena Superbena Royale® Cherryburst

Verbena  ver-BEE-nuh

Proven Winners Superbena Royale® Cherryburst:

Clusters of rose-pink stars striped white will stop both humans and butterflies in their tracks to enjoy the show. With medium-green toothed foliage, these flower machines continuously bloom through the fall, shrug off heat and drought and do not need deadheading. As a bonus, deer also avoid this family of plants (if you happen to share your garden space with them). These verbena hybrids only get about a foot tall and have a mounded, trailing habit that can extend to two feet long. In containers, whether hanging baskets, patio planters or raised beds, they can be used as spillers or fillers. In the landscape, they make cheerful star-spangled edging.

Verbena  ver-BEE-nuh

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.
