An Argentinian verbena skyline is unmistakable. Verbena’s tall, slender stems, displaying delicate lilac flowers in tight clusters atop, create a whimsical appearance of floating flower heads dancing in the wind. Its unique appearance makes it a great choice for wildflower borders and meadows as well as for terrace gardens to create a sort of natural border. In addition to its beauty, verbena is a great pollinator-host plant. Butterflies, in particular, love verbena for their fragrant, nectar-filled flowers, but they would not mind sharing the spot with bumblebees and ladybirds. Its Latin name bonariensis actually came from Buenos Aires, where the plant was discovered.
