Hereof, how do you plant verbena?
If starting seed indoors under LED grow lights, plant 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date. Plant verbena in full sun in compost-amended beds once all the danger of frost passes. Space plants 10″ to 12″ inches apart. Verbena though not too particular about soil except it does need a well-drained soil.
Similarly, can verbena take full sun? All verbena needs to grow in full sun to light shade in well-draining soil. Perennial verbenas are heat tolerant and drought tolerant once established. They do well in xeriscape gardens. Most, annual and perennial varieties will bloom from spring until frost with regular deadheading.
In this manner, does verbena like acidic soil?
Verbenas need a soil that drains well, but not one that is particularly rich or fertile. Flowering will suffer if soils are too fertile. Soil pH should be 5.8 - 6.2 for optimum uptake of iron; and should be tested prior to planting but after adding any amendments.
Why is my verbena not blooming?
The verbena needs moist soil until it is pretty well-established, but cannot tolerate soil that does not drain well, and may develop disease because of the poor drainage. The native verbena mentioned above blooms from March to October.
