DETAILS

Overview

Hometown: BLOOMINGTON.

Bicolor white and pink flowers.

They flower all season.

Large clusters of soft pink to ruby flowers, grace well-branched plants. The flowers completely cover the canopy of dark green, powdery mildew-resistant foliage all summer without deadheading. It is an excellent spiller in combination planters and hanging baskets.

Superbena® - Selected for their robust size, exceptional mildew resistance, and larger flowers that are produced all summer without deadheading, you won’t find a better verbena than Superbena.

Sun Exposure



   Plants that require part sun to part shade need at least 4 hours of sun but can’t take more than 6 hours of sun. These are great for locations that only get the morning sun or only get the afternoon sun or only get the evening sun. They can also be planted in area that filters the sun all day long like under a tree.

Maintenance Notes

Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.

Superbena are our most vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant series. While always great in containers they are also fantastic in landscape beds. They can tolerate dry soils and lower fertility. Normally either an application of slow release fertilizer or amending with compost is enough to keep them happy and blooming in landscape beds. They shouldn't need to be trimmed back but can be given a "haircut" - a trim back - using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers. I usually give them a very slight trim as I am transplanting to boost branching.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
