    Features

    Superbena Verbena have great vigor, awesome branching and wonderful summer performance. The cheerful cherry and soft peach striped flowers are clustered in large umbels that cover the deep green foliage. 

    Combine Cherryburst with all of your favorite medium vigor varieties in hanging baskets, upright containers and window boxes or use it as a low growing, flowering groundcover in the landscape. Like all Superbena, you’ll find that this plant has exceptional resistance to powdery mildew.

    The most eye-catching trait of this cultivar is its cherry red and peach striped flowers. We always select for stable patterns that give gardeners the most consistent experience possible. However, when it comes to striped patterns like this, there is likely to be some variation over time. This pattern will, at times, naturally change to a solid color. This can be a single flower in a cluster, a whole umbel of flowers or even an entire branch. The mutation does not harm the plant but can be removed if desired.

    Uses Notes: 

    Superbena are great in landscape beds, but are also wonderful in patio planters and hanging baskets by themselves. They also make a wonderful spiller in combination recipes.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    These are heat tolerant plants, that aren't particularly fussy. They need little routine maintenance. They will perform best if an application of controlled release fertilizer is included at the time of planting. This applies to both landscape and container plantings. The plants aren't particularly heavy feeders, so a single dose is usually sufficient for landscape beds in most climates. If you have a very long season, a second application of controlled release plant food should be considered for landscape beds. In general, containers need to be fed more than landscape plants. A second application of a controlled release fertilizer should be applied about every two months to container plants or you can regularly apply water soluble fertilizer starting about two months after the containers are planted. These extra applications of plant food can really make a difference in performance through the summer.

    If your plant begins to look open or a bit tired, an allover trim can be beneficial.  Use a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears to trim back up to 1/3 of the volume of the plant. I pair any trim with a dose of water soluble fertilizer to provide instant energy to help kickstart new growth, branching and flowering. Your plant will take a week to recover from the trim, but the end result is a fuller plant with more blooms going forward. You may repeat the trim as needed through the season.
