Superbena verbenas are very vigorous with strongly trailing habits  They need relatively long days to bloom and are difficult to produce in small container sizes.  They have very large flowers and umbels.  They are great in landscapes and containers.  In landscapes, they are best used at the front of beds and they function as spillers in combination planters.  If you are looking for a colorful annual ground cover, Superbena is a great choice.

Superbena are our most vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant series. While always great in containers they are also fantastic in landscape beds. They can tolerate dry soils and lower fertility. Normally either an application of slow release fertilizer or amending with compost is enough to keep them happy and blooming in landscape beds. They shouldn't need to be trimmed back but can be given a "haircut" - a trim back - using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers. I usually give them a very slight trim as I am transplanting to boost branching.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

  • Purchased several of these in May. The plants were fully flowered and lovely. They are in a hanging planter, watered every few days and given plant nutrients. Sad to say they have not bloomed any more. Disappointed as I planted them with new soil from the nursery where I bought them. Do they have a dormant period? I thought they would add color all season.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • When I bought them at Fred Meyer in Spokane WA, a few years ago, I thought $4 was a lot to pay for annuals in 4" pots, but they were the best investment in plants I ever made. Compliments poured in from friends, neighbors and strangers. Thank you!

  • Planted in window boxes that I put on my porch. Unfortunately, they only lasted three weeks. West and south-west facing, I had hopes that these would grow. Using new waterless containers and soil may have contributed. Will try again. Pretty color

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
