De La Mina Verbena
Verbena lilacina 'De La Mina'
  
About De La Mina Verbena (Verbena lilacina 'De La Mina') 15 Nurseries Carry This Plant Horticultural selection from Verbena lilacina. This adaptable mounding perennial is a selection from Cedros Island. It produces mounds of delicate green foliage and has dark purple blossoms with lavender streaks and the blossoms are lightly scented. Though there are more flowers in the spring, this plant has blossoms throughout most of the year which attracts butterflies throughout the year. This small shrub grows to about about 2' high and spreads to about 4'. It does best in well drained soils but will tolerate clay soil provided it isn't over-watered. This is a very attractive and versatile plant for any flower border, butterfly garden or plant it in containers on a patio. To maintain a dense form shear lightly in summer, and remove spent flowers. The butterflies will flock to your garden! De la Mina Verbena was selected by Carol Bornstein and introduced by the santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Grows best in loamy, medium draining soil. Prefers sun in coastal sites, and part shade in inland sites. Selected for the garden; introduced by santa Barbara Botanic Garden.
