(Verbena)

The Tropical Breeze Series of verbena are trailing, vigorous, tender perennials that also make excellent annuals in colder regions. From late spring through fall, they bear rounded clusters of flowers in shades of pink, red, violet, or white above carpets of toothed, mildew-resistant leaves. Tropical Breeze verbenas prefer sun and well-drained, moist, moderately fertile soil, but will tolerate dry conditions. They are great for planters, hanging baskets, edging, and borders.
