This verbena is one tough plant. I got it Spring of 2010 and haven't had any problems with it. Blooms Spring through Fall, stays green all year and is 4' across. I fertilize is with Plant Tone maybe once a year and it rarely gets extra water.
It has a wonderful mounding habit, no straggly stems at all.
