Product Description

 

Verbena x hybrida

|50  Seeds|

 

Mixture of Quartz XP Blue w/eye, Red w/eye and White. The Quartz XP varieties demonstrate a consistent early flowering and tight 6-7 day blooming window. Quartz XP plants also branch early and have short internodes, translating to a bushier habit that supports the large, colorful flowers. Consumers can expect strong garden performance and prolific blooming. Height: 10 to 12", 12 to 14" spread. Quartz XP will maintain the strong garden performance, creating slightly spreading, mounded plants with huge umbels of large, beautiful florets over the dark green foliage. Quartz XP makes brilliant containers, beds and hanging baskets; in mixed plantings, it will trail over the edge of the container. All are well-matched for early flowering and are significantly improved for branched habit. Strong seed quality continues to be a hallmark of this better-than-before series. Verbena is as versatile as it is beautiful! An annual in most areas (a perennial in frost-free climates), Verbena is drought resistant and easy to grow from seed, making it perfect for hanging baskets, containers, and rock gardens, or as a groundcover or cut flower. Butterflies will love the colors.Brilliant blooms that are free flowering, compact abd easy to grow.

Tips on How to Grow Verbena from Seeds

Germination

  • Start Verbena  - sow seeds about 8-12 weeks before the last frost date.

  • Cover seed lightly with growing medium. 2-3 seeds per individual peat or fiber pots.
  • Seed is slow to germinate (10-30 days)  and sensitive to excess moisture, so keep growing medium on the dry side until emergence.
  • Place seed trays on a heating mat during the day and remove at night to ensure the proper germination temperature. Alternating temperatures between 60°F at night and 86°F during the day helps to break dormancy.
  • Transplant to cell packs or larger containers after true leaves appear. Harden off and transplant outside after the last frost.
  • Direct seed only in areas with long growing seasons. Sow seeds after the last frost, barely covering seeds.
  • Verbena needs 8-10 hours of direct sunlight every day and a well-drained soil. Plants that are kept too moist and don’t get enough sun are susceptible to powdery mildew and other diseases. Plant verbena in the sunniest location in your garden to prevent this problem.
