Verbena Superbena Whiteout

FEATURES

I feel a big GROWTH SPURT coming on.

Superbena verbenas are very vigorous with strongly trailing habits  They need relatively long days to bloom and are difficult to produce in small container sizes.  They have very large flowers and umbels.  They are great in landscapes and containers.  In landscapes, they are best used at the front of beds and they function as spillers in combination planters.  If you are looking for a colorful annual ground cover, Superbena is a great choice.

We always select for stable colors that give gardeners the most consistent experience possible. However, with some plants there is likely to be some variation over time. Superbena Whiteout will at times naturally change. This can be a single flower in a cluster, a whole umbel of flowers or even an entire branch.  For Superbena Whiteout, this color change is most likely to be to either a striped pattern or solid violet. If you prefer that your plant not have this color variation, trimming off the portion of the plant that has flowers with the odd coloration, can minimize how much of your plant ends up with the color change. If you don’t mind the new look, there is no need to do anything.  It isn’t detrimental to the plant in any way. This isn’t a common occurrence, but it is something that happens in a small percentage of Superbena Whiteout plants each year.

Superbena are our most vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant series. While always great in containers they are also fantastic in landscape beds. They can tolerate dry soils and lower fertility. Normally either an application of slow release fertilizer or amending with compost is enough to keep them happy and blooming in landscape beds. They shouldnt need to be trimmed back but can be given a haircut a trim back using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers. I usually give them a very slight trim as I am transplanting to boost branching.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Superbena have an early compact habit that becomes a vigorous spreader with strong garden performance. The abundance flowering helps these varieties really stand out in the garden.
