    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.

    Large clusters of soft pink to ruby flowers, grace well-branched plants. The flowers completely cover the canopy of dark green, powdery mildew-resistant foliage all summer without deadheading. It is an excellent spiller in combination planters and hanging baskets.

    Superbena® - Selected for their robust size, exceptional mildew resistance, and larger flowers that are produced all summer without deadheading, you won’t find a better verbena than Superbena.

    • Love the color but not as vigorous and colorful as the Royale series. They are perennials for us in the Atlanta area. Hoping they will perform better this year.

    • Love the coloring on this plant, but for me it has not had the same vigor as other superbenas I have grown. I have it planted in 2 different containers with supertunia fuschia and you can barely see it. I know that they like it hot so it is possible that it got a late start due to the cooler than normal spring. I just gave the supertunia a haircut to give them some room and will see what happens.

    • I absolutely adored this plant. I also got the Sparkling Amethyst. The plants grew MORE than 30" in diameter. They truly are resistant to powdery mildew. My other verbenas (not superbenas) were riddled with it. These were growing right next to them and didn't contract it from them at all, not even one leaf! Amazing!! I can't wait to get them again next year. They were such a delight! They didn't mind being top watered from the inground sprinklers. They are also great as a spiller.

    • This verbena is BEAUTIFUL! I love the small bloom-within-a-bloom. The plant keeps growing and growing, and cuttings last a long time in a bouquet. Wish I'd bought a dozen of these!
