This is lovely! The dark verbena is one of my favorite flowers. A great pairing.

Thanks Morgana for your comment.
It is I who call this plant "jewel of the Mediterranean", where I live grows naturally on the reef.
It 's a simple plant but great visual impact, very generous in flowers ... a gem that shines among the rocks, a flash of light in the undergrowth ...
You can tell I love this plant?
