Self-set Verbena bonariensis (Verbena bonariensis (Verbena))

I'm finding this is very much like Buddleia, it seeds everywhere, especially in pavement cracks.....much easier to live with though...:o)

Ah yes, that's a good illustration of the difference in our climates. Here I cannot overwinter a V. Bon. I bought V. Bon 'Lollipop' this year, which is said to be much hardier...fingers crossed!

Janey would you mind sending me a few seeds if you have any to spare, I tried to raise this last year and failed but would like to give it another go;0)

Strange thing is Karen, the plants in the garden haven't done too well, it's the seeds that germinated in the wet spring in between paving slabs etc that have really flourished. Let's hope your lollipop copes better with your damp Angus climate.

They do Planta.....been covered in butterflies too today....:0)).

Home bird and Carole, can send you both seeds in a few weeks??
