Botanical Name

VERBENA 'Pink Parfait'

Plant Common Name

Pink Parfait Verbena, Verbena

General Description

The two-tone blooms of 'Pink Parfait' are deepest pink and white and provide a constant show of color all season long. This vigorous tender perennial is a fast growing bedding plant that’s ideal for warm, sunny beds and borders. It has a mounding to spreading habit, is densely branched and crisp deep green leaves.

When the weather heats up, 'Pink Parfait' produces many colorful clusters of small tubular flowers that are highly attractive to butterflies. It blooms all year around in climates with mild winters and all summer in temperate locations. To encourage continuous heavy blooming regularly deadhead the plants or cut them back lightly in late summer.

Like many verbena, 'Pink Parfait' is drought tolerant and resilient to summer heat and humidity. It prefers full sun and moderately fertile, amply drained soil. If planted in too much shade it will quickly become leggy and cease to flower. Trailing verbena is a superb bedding plant for hanging baskets or colorful containers. It is also useful to flesh out newly planted beds and to fill in between immature shrubs. This bedding plant is easily grown from seed.
