General Description

The Lanai™ series of verbena are trailing, vigorous, tender perennials that also make excellent annuals in colder regions. From late spring through fall, Lanai™ Blue bears domed heads of purple flowers above spreading mounds of lobed, mildew-resistant leaves. Lanai™ Blue prefers sun and well-drained, moist, moderately fertile soil, but will tolerate dry conditions. It is great for planters, hanging baskets, edging, and borders.
