Gardeners' Notes:

I tried these in a large container with several other annuals (vinca minor, calibrachoa, gazania, salvia and cordyline). They suffered at first from some dieback but recovered. The flowers were a nice bright red colour, but were not as abundant as other verbana I have tried in the past.
