Buy Verbena officinalis var. grandiflora 'Bampton' vervain 'Bampton': A new form with purple-flushed foliage

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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (will need protection in winter)

    The bronze or purple-flushed foliage of this new vervain is held on slender stems, which for a long period throughout summer, are topped with spikes of small violet-pink flowers. It creates a light and airy clump, which looks great in naturalised planting schemes or pots.

  • Garden care: In cold conditions it can suffer dieback if cut back in autumn, so it's best to leave the plant until spring and cut back the old growth when you see the new shoots emerging at the base. Also it's a good idea to mulch around the base of the plant with a deep, dry mulch in winter to help protect the plant.

Beautiful and fluffy

5

This is such a gorgeous little plant, the 3 I received were way more mature than I thought they'd be. They have a wild fluffy look to all the flower heads, great for a cottage style garden. I know people say it's middle of border but I'd say front as they're thin and floaty so they don't block the view of plants behind

Unusual form of Verbena but would definitely buy again

used in large containers with grasses and orange Cosmos. very successful planting. Cut back plants last winter and despite some very cold weather plants regrew and are just as good this year. Probably because of some extreme winter weather plants came into leaf very late but soon caught up.

Unusual alternative to Bonariensis

This is an attractive plant and very different to Bonariensis. I like the contrast in colour between the flowers and the leaves.

I have this growing in a small border round a raised pond, also in a large pot. I love how it sways in the breeze. The colour is beautiful and grows stronger each year.
