Verbena 'Homestead Purple' is a showy perennial flowering from May through October with rich-purple blooms covering the plant. The dark green foliage creeps and covers quickly. Verbena prefers regular watering with well drained soil with good air circulation. Can behave more like an annual or bi-annual when conditions are not right. Once it is dormant, wait for Spring growth to appear before pruning hard. Mature height 12"-18", spread 24"-36"
