That's Babylon Bronze, Stripes. It seems slightly lighter in colour this year.It's been great , flowering for weeks and still lots of buds!
Yes, Gee and Verbena Bonariensis. When I was putting the title on, the thumbnail pic was so small my poor old eyes didn't spot that in the picture. I love Verbena B.You can put it at the front middle or back of a border and despite it's height it doesn't block the view of other plants, being such slender stems! I did lose quite a few last winter but then a few self seeds came up to replace them!

Thanks, yes i love the Verbena Bonariensis.You can put them anywhere in a border without blocking the view of anything else as they are so slender.

Thanks Paul, thats a good tip.
I have a few of them in purple in my borders too,a real enhancer. Would actually like to have some in other colours if I find.

Most of the perrenial verbenas I have seen are a purpl/pink or mauve/blue type colour but none as tall as Bonariensis.
