Hey!I was just going to say that! I didn't think Verbena liked cold weather. Regardless, it's a very nice banner.

Great banner Casey!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you @plantmanager, @Marilyn, @Fleur569, @Whitebeard, @tx_flower_child, @crawgarden, @pirl, @ge1836, @GaNinFl, @TBGDN, @wildflowers, @Lestv for your thoughtful comments!!

Thank you @Marilyn, @Fleur569, @tx_flower_child for the acorns!!

And thank you to everyone for the thumbs!!!

Sean and tx_flower_child - Last year was the first year I planted this type of verbena. So far it's survived our winter which really surprised me too, though my verbena bonariensis overwinters here.

Arlene, Leon and Christine - After reading your comments I have a craving for lemonade with mint!

Leslie and Karen - Creating banners has been a fun project! It has given me a chance to go though my garden photos, revisiting the transformations it has gone through over the years. I've had a lot of those "Why don't I grow those any more?" The likely answer is, "Oh yeah. Irises." Whistling

@greenappleagnes Casey,

Would you post a full size pic? It would make a great "Winter Interest" in the photo gallery section of the Verbena 'Homestead Purple'. You should submit it there. I looked it at and noticed you hadn't posted it. Here's the link for you.

My verbena not only doesn't look like that but it never has.
