Best for patios

Verbena peruviana Firehouse is perfect for hanging baskets and containers because it forms a mound of flowers that easily fills a hanging basket or patio planter. What’s different about this verbena is that it doesn’t cycle in and out of flowers. New flowers are opening as the old ones die. The foliage is tough and disease resistant too. Place in a position that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. Baskets require daily watering in summer and containers every second to third day. Use a liquid fertilizer for flowers twice a month. Plants are available in eight different colours including purple fizz and lavender. Details: ballstraathof.co.za
