Swapped a north facing garden in Stirlingshire for something a bit more rural (and a bit sunnier) in Clackmannanshire in April 2021.

Verbena growing under the livingroom window - soon to be growing over it at this rate.

I fell in love with Verbena a couple of years ago when I saw one of the squares in Edinburgh planted with a border of them and nothing else. They looked very elegant @jeatacake

A beautiful and surprisingly warm autumn day here. I came home to find 7 red admirals on the verbena in the front garden 😍

@gjones I've never seen that many in one place. I always try to plant with wildlife in mind, so I must be doing something right 🙂

I didn't realise Verbena flowered for such a long time and it's still going strong, much to the delight of the butterflies 🦋

And it self seeds everywhere, I must have given hundreds of plants away over the last few years, you can easily tell the seedlings they have square stems.

@lisa868 When I first planted it, high winds knocked a plant pot off the step and snapped it and I remember saying "well that'll never grow now" - wrong! It's a monster now 😃 I like a seedling that I can identify, so square stems are a bonus.
