Verbena

Verbena is another large plant family that includes both annuals and perennials. Bees and butterflies love them in all their beautiful shades of purple, red, pink and white. Verbena’s do best during the hot weather and in full sun. Some, like creeping verbena, grow and spread low to the ground; others, like Brazilian verbena, can grow as tall as four or five feet!
