Verbena "Blue Princess"
Annual in my Zone 5, but love its rapid growth and spreading habit.
July 2003. Close up of flower. Spread is now about 3-1/2 ft as of early Sept. 2003.
Grows wild everywhere here.
Beautiful by day as well as when a porchlight shines on them in their hanging basket at night. They have not died back this winter. Shown in March. (San Antonio, Tx.)
2nd year for this plant.
Pretty, fragrant bloom!
Close up of the leaves.
Seen here mixed with another perennial verbena, Homestead Purple, and Bronze Beauty ajuga.
