General Description

The Obsession Series of verbena are trailing, vigorous, tender perennials that also make excellent annuals in colder regions. They are heavily-branched plants with dainty, lobed leaves. From late spring through fall, they bear rounded clusters of flowers in shades of pink, purple, red, blue, or white, often with contrasting white eyes. Obsession Series 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.
