  • Description

    Winter Hardiness: Annual
    Light Requirements: Full sun - part sun

    Where to plant: Containers or 

    Lanai Verbena is just the best verbena on the market. This series has a wide colour range with large blooms that cover the plant in an array of colour. Some varieties have a beautiful delicate bouquet. The standard verbena is a spreading plant, but there are also upright varieties.

  • Growing Guide
    Performs well in mixed containers, hanging baskets or beds. Heat tolerant, but avoid drying out. The Lanai series has excellent resistance to powdery mildew. No maintenance is necessary. Fertilize with any all purpose, compost, etc.

  • Trailing Varieties: Many varieties not available 2021 due to supplier "issues" (aka, they froze in their shipping container that was snowed in during transport after propagation in the sunny south. Apparently FedEx doesn't think shipping life plant material in heated containers is necessary).
