I don't remember growing verbena before. This plant was in a little pot in the cottage plant section of the nursery, and the candy-stripe caught my eye. I bought both the ones they had, and each plant is romping away happily and flowering generously. I think I'll try to catch seeds from them when they're nearing the end of their season. I've since bought white verbena in a punnet, and a coloured mix, also in a punnet, and added them to the garden - with some of the white ones in the hanging baskets of white flowers I've potted up for the verandah.
