Synonyms:  V. × hybrida 'Imagination'

This outstanding hybrid blooms from spring until frost and has beautifully dissected foliage.

Verbenas are excellent for annual borders, containers—especially hanging baskets—and for the mixed herbaceous border.

Problems:  Whiteflies, aphids, slugs, snails, scale insects, spider mites, powdery mildew, Septoria leaf spot, rust.
