Verbena ‘Imagination’

FN 3.1 VER Imagination
Verbena ‘Imagination’ is one of our favorites for high summer color

‘Imagination’ is valued as much for its tough nature as for its vibrant violet-blue flowers and lacy dark green foliage. During the hottest, driest conditions of the season this Blue Ribbon Verbena shines, spreading to form a colorful groundcover even among rocks or around construction sites.

Since it blooms all the way up, over, and down, ‘Imagination’ is an important draping and spilling element to remember when you’re designing your summer garden. We like to use it in hanging baskets and tall planters where it can flow over the edges and down the sides.

Verbena is versatile, working equally well in the garden and in containers. We find that by adding ‘Imagination’ to beds and planters in the same yard we can tie a design together visually. Gray cement urns and stones are effective background settings since they make the pretty blue flowers pop.
