I just planted two Aztec Verbena this January. They have absolutely taken off. I have the light pink ones and the flowers glow with beauty. Full of flowers, healthy green foliage, and this in the middle of winter. Of course I live in Zone 9A and we have had no freezes here but temps have reached mid 30's. I am going to try propagation and have a question should I try rooting cuttings in water or directly in soil. Help???
