Verbena officinalis var. grandiflora 'Bampton'

Vervain 'Bampton'

'Bampton' is a bushy, upright perennial with fine, wiry branches bearing deep purple foliage and from mid-summer to mid autumn, short spikes of small purplish-pink flowers. 

Discovered in the village of Bampton, Devon, this Verbena is shorter, hardier and more drought tolerant than either V. hastata or V. bonariensis making it an airy candidate for larger containers. 

Attractive to bees and butterflies, it will stock the garden with many beneficial pollinators. Another generous self seeder but in our view that's a major benefit. 

Absolutely gorgeous.
