Buy Glandularia 'Claret' vervain ( syn Verbena 'Claret' ): Prefect for a 'hot' border

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy

    Dark claret flowers are produced throughout summer and into autumn above feathery, green foliage. A vigorous, ground-hugging perennial for a sunny spot, which looks lovely in a 'hot' border. It associates really well with yellow and orange flowering plants, such as Crocosmia 'George Davison' and Dahlia 'Arabian Night'. It also looks lovely planted in pots on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: Protect plants in winter with a dry winter mulch around the crown.

Powdery mildew on my plants Hi, I wonder if your plant doctor may be able to answer a query for me. I have bought a few Verbenas from yourselves and they all seem to have suffered the dreaded powder mildew problem. I have sprayed with a recommended product and discarded the affected leaves but don't know if I have sorted the problem or not sufficiently? I read that this often affects plants that are under stress, - I did keep all the plants potted up (although some in larger pots than at purchase) close to each other for some time. I wonder if that might be why this happened ? Any advice would be welcome. They are now all in the garden and hopefully will thrive. Sue

Hello Sue, Powdery Mildew is caused by the plants being too dry and having poor air circulation, which are usually made worse when the plants are growing in pots. It sounds as of you have tackled it correctly, so they should improve.
