SOLVED: Pretty purple plant

Lutz, FL(Zone 9b)

My first thought was Lantana. This shrub is about 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Thanks

The leaves and flowers look like a verbena.

Thanks Debby, now I can go looking

Debby is right they are verbena x hybrida not sure of the variety though.

you are so lucky... this is tampa vervain, mine bloomed all last winter, the two nights in a row of 16F burned 2-3 leaves off one plant. pretty sure about this id, i have blonde eyes. just floridafriendlyplants.com

Arlene, thanks for that link, it's one I didn't have. The color in my picture is pretty true. The flowers seem more pink on the link. Which looks like yours? And shall I try for seeds?

is definitely a light purple (color challenged), not pink, i bought mine at home depot, came from floridafriendlyplants... they do reseed and they also spread when kept kind of wet. i scattered dried flower pods and they definitely came up, can't really explain the seeds to you, but sure you will find them fine. it was wonderful to have them blooming all winter.

May be verbena trinidad? I bought one similar to it. But my bloom is a bit darker than this. Leaves look so alike.
