Verbena (Glandularia canadensis 'Homestead Carpet Red') produces short-stemmed, delicate-petaled clusters of full red blossoms against a green foliage mat. It is attractive to butterflies and is a source of nectar. Often grown as an annual, it is hardy to zone 7b, enjoys sunny spots, and does well with summer heat. Works well as a ground cover or in window boxes.
