Container Role: Thriller
Amount of Shade: Part Shade
Another type of verbena to try is Verbena bonariensis. It is a tall plant that has an upright habit and grows to 20-30″, which makes it ideal for using as a thriller in a part-sun container.
‘Meteor Shower‘ is my favorite color of this Verbena variety. Its typical verbena tufted blooms are a violet/lilac color.
