Planting and care

Verbena plants, known for its brightly colored blossoms and fast growth, are sun-loving and drought tolerant, making them perfect for warmer climates. While you can buy started verbena plants in a garden store or nursery, growing them from seed may be gentler on your budget.

To start enjoying your verbena as soon as possible, plant the seeds indoors in a seed tray approximately 12 weeks before the last spring frost in your specific area. In a short time, you ll have splashes of cheerful color for painting your home s landscaping pallet.

Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: Plant in ordinary garden soil.
Water: Water regularly until the plants are happy and well established. Thereafter, water them only when very dry.
Temperature: 65 to 70 degrees C
Fertilizer: Verbena needs to be fertilized only once a year – in spring when the plants are about 4 inch tall. Use a complete fertilizer, and don’t fertilize verbena plants when you first set them out in the garden. Wait until they are established and growing.

Caring for Verbena Quartz Mix Colors

  • While the verbena flower is drought resistant, the blooms are improved with regular watering of an inch or so each week.
  • Water verbena plants at the base to avoid wetting the foliage.
  • However, verbena plant care may not include weekly water if rainfall in your area has reached an inch or more.
  • A limited application of complete, slow-release fertilizer is also a part of verbena plant care.
  • Apply in spring and again following the occasional trims needed for optimum bloom.
  • When planted in proper verbena growing conditions, expect blooms the first season.
  • Continued blooms throughout the summer are possible if the gardener keeps the plant trimmed back.
  • Some are hesitant to remove parts of the plant regularly, but this is often necessary when planting verbena for summer blooms.
  • When blooms slow, trim the entire plant back by one fourth for a new show of flowers in two to three weeks.
  • Fertilize lightly following the trim and water well. Repeat this step as needed when learning how to grow verbena successfully.
  • When planting verbena, remember to water, fertilize and trim for long lasting color in the summer garden and beyond.

Harvesting

  • Wait until after the flowers fade and wither away, leaving behind the seed heads.
  • Pick the stalks once the seed heads dry and fade to the same shade of brown as a paper bag.
  • Place the seed head in a well-ventilated, warm room to dry for two weeks.
  • Lay it in a bowl lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture as it dries.
  • Remove the paper towels, then crumble the seed head into the bowl. Remove any large pieces of non-seed plant matter.
  • Label an envelope with the verbena variety and the year the seed is harvest.
  • Place seeds into the envelope and store in a cool, dry place. Alternately, fill a cloth bag with 1/2 cup powdered milk and place in the bottom of a jar.
  • Place the seed envelope into the jar and screw the lid on the milk absorbs any excess moisture.
  • Store in the refrigerator until ready to plant.
