Verbena (Verbena Hybrids Nana Compacta Apricot) - Verbena is one of the garden essentials that bloom from spring to fall with very little fuss. This annual is easy-to-grow from Verbena seeds, and it's such a versatile little plant. Apricot Verbena flowers are particularly gorgeous in hanging baskets and containers, and they are great for edging a border or as general ground cover plants. In frost-free climates it is grown as a perennial, but most of us will grow it as an annual. These low growing ground cover plants grow in clumps that reach a height of approximately 8 inches (20 cm).

Verbena plants like full sun, moderate water, and good drainage. Without good drainage they are prone to mildew. Verbena care includes trimming the plants back 1 - 2 times per season to keep them looking tidy and stimulate new bloom. You only need to fertilize Verbena ground cover plants once a year and this is usually done in the spring. Use a complete, balanced fertilizer that is not too high in nitrogen. Butterflies love apricot Verbena, but thankfully Verbena plants are deer and rabbit resistant.
