Verbena. Widely adaptable, it is best started indoors 12 to 14 weeks before transplanting out after all danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds in a good seed-starting medium at 70°F with even moisture. Cover seeds completely, as darkness aids germination. For even moisture during germination, cover flats or pots with plastic wrap until seedlings emerge, then discard plastic. Harden off seedlings by gradually acclimating them outside over 1 to 2 weeks. Carefully transplant out into rich, well-draining soil in full sunlight, spaced 8" to 12" apart. Water regularly and mulch to deter weeds and retain ground moisture. Heat and drought tolerant, it requires little care once established and will spread to cover the space allotted for it. Verbena is great for hanging baskets, planters and window boxes. Summer flowering. Height: 36" to 42".
