Description from Annie's Annuals & Perennials
Verbena lilacina ‘De La Mina’
Love bloomiferous perennials but don’t want to water? Now you can have your cake & eat it, too! Exploding into a cloud of rich lavender-blue flower clusters in Spring, this SUPER EASY, SUPER TOUGH native blooms year around with 1” clusters of fragrant flowers, especially with an occasional drink in Summer. Valuable for both cottagey & dry gardens or large pots, it makes a dense 3’ high & wide mound. Butterflies & bees adore it & thrives in a range of soils, from sandy to clay. Thanks to horticulturalist Carol Bornstein of the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden for discovering this selection on Cedros Island off the West coast of Baja California!
