Full Description

Color-mad perennial groundcover rolls out a carpet of large, high-definition-color purple blooms on floriferous spikes. Flowering like crazy late spring into mid-fall, ‘Santos Purple’s 12” spreading plants can lay out an island of super-rich color: massed in the sunny landscape, in the border, or mingling amid other perennials in a container. Flowering the first year, perennial thrives in heat and drought and thirsty soil. A favorite with birds, bees, and insects.

Life Cycle
Verbena rigida, Santos Purple is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grew like wildflowers I bought this seed. Germinated a few on my first attempt growing from seed ever. They are supposed to only be good to zone 7. However, here i am in zone 6 it is 4 years later and they have taken over my garden. They send runners AND drop seeds. It looks beautiful but beware of their tendency to take over.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from direct seed planting Planted all as directed, nothing grew, very disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from None of the seeds that I received did well. Most of them did not germinate and it took forever for the verbena to grow. I planted several rosemary seeds in pots and none of them grew. The nasturtium is just now starting to get buds despite having been planted at the beginning of the summer. I fear they will not bloom. I planted the verbena according to instructions months ago and they are now just getting to be about 6 inches high. Overall, I am very disappointed with my purchase.
