    'Imagination' is my favorite of the Verbenas to grow. Beautiful purple colored flowers and lacy foliage. I knew it was a winner long before I knew it was the 1993 AAS Flower Award winner. Perfect in a container growing by itself or fabulous in a mixed container grouping with other plants with the same growing conditions. Can be grow in hanging baskets or used as a ground cover. Loves the heat and is drought tolerant once established. Long blooming from late spring to fall.

    It is hard to find as established plants. Need to grow from seed.
