General Description

The TAPIEN™ SERIES of verbena are trailing, vigorous, tender perennials that also make excellent annuals in colder regions. They are heavily-branched plants with feathery leaves.

Tapien™ 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.
