This beautiful perennial flower is a fast growing, clump forming tender perennial. Every summer, tall, wiry stems shoot up above a low basal clump of leaves. At the top of these stems clusters of purple flowers attract butterflies other pollinators like nothing else.
Even though Verbena bonariensis is a very tall plant, it is known as a "see through" plant because it is so wiry and airy. Don't be afraid to put it in front of shrubs, though I would not recommend it for the front of the border, as they base is not terribly attractive.
Verbena bonariensis is a perennial and will reseed in your garden. Cut flowers before they go to seed if you do not want volunteers in your garden.
Also an excellent cut flower.
