Very pretty banner @Fleur569 ! Thumbs up
I like the colors, contrast, & lighting.

BTW, I have a similar verbena, though not as pretty foliage.

I had seen it for years in front of a neighbor's & at the sides of his driveway. It grows in the hardest soil with virtually no organic matter or water. but came back every year, and bloomed profusely & freely. You'd never know it was there when it was dormant.
(maybe it just re-seeded?)

The neighbor was gracious enough to share it with me, so now we have some, too. Smiling

Ahh, a well-timed Lenten purple banner for Ash Wednesday. Some even look hole-y. And I think, if you look hard enough, you can even find a heart or two. Happy Valentine's Day to you, Queen Fleur. Lovey dubby

Beautiful banner Fleur!
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.

@Marilyn, @EscondidoCal
The closest description I can give is that it is a Verbena canadensis, a straight species, not hybrid, which does re-seed itself, and is not a fuss button. Will even grow at the edge of a driveway, as you can see from the banner.
