Organic Verbena «Compacta White»Verbena is a familiar summer annual that adds so much with so little effort! This white Verbena has a dwarf and compact growth habit which makes it ideal for growing as a ground cover plant.
White Verbena flowers are perfect for free flowering hanging baskets, flowing out over the edge of pots or window sill boxes. Or use them as edging plants in the sunny border. These little white Verbena plants are so versatile! And, they bloom from late spring until fall and the first frost! Verbena care includes trimming the plant back a time or two during the season to neaten its appearance and to promote more blooming.
Soak Verbena seeds in tepid water 24 hours prior to sowing. Sow the seed in starter trays, using a sterilized peaty mix. Press white Verbena flower seeds into the soil and lightly cover with peat moss. Verbena ground cover seeds need darkness for germination. Cover the starter tray with newspaper or black plastic with air holes cut into it and keep out of direct sun. Transplant Verbena seedlings into the garden 12 - 18 inches apart.
Want to do a mass Verbena planting? No problem! You can sow Verbena ground cover seeds directly outdoors in spring when frost season is completely over. Be patient, as these flower seeds can be slow to germinate, but just keep the seed moist with warm temperatures and before long you will have a beautiful ground cover. For the earliest blooms, start the Verbena seeds indoors for transplanting.
