The Cake Pops™ Pink Tuberous Verbena can effortlessly handle the heat and humidity of summer, making this a great performer in hanging baskets and beds in the south. The Verbena rigida boasts clusters of delicate pink flowers that grow at the ends of tall stems surrounded by thin, oblong green foliage. This mounding plant is typically used as a filler in containers. Blooms continue to emerge throughout the spring, summer, and fall.

This plant is native to the southern U.S., so it is naturally heat-, humidity- and drought-tolerant. The Cake Pops™ Pink Tuberous Verbena, is very well suited to the climate of the south and thrives with very little care. Use Verbena in borders, landscapes, and containers. This plant attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and it is deer-resistant, ensuring you can enjoy its good looks all season long. The Cake Pops™ Pink Tuberous Verbena grows as a perennial in USDA zones 7, 8, 9, and 10. The plant is an annual in all other zones.

Cake Pops® Pink Tuberous Verbena Plant Care

While this Verbena is drought-tolerant, it is best to ensure the plant has plenty to drink to maintain its abundant blooms. This variety prefers consistently damp soil, so water when the top layer is still moist. While this plant likes moisture, it still does best with well-draining soil. The optimal soil will have a pH of  6.1 - 7.5. Lots of sun will promote new growth, so find a spot with at least 4 to 6 hours of daily sunlight exposure. Fertilize in the spring and again midsummer to ensure continuous blooms. Feed container plants every 2 months for improved performance.

Deadheading is not ordinarily necessary but remove spent flowers. An overall trim can keep the plant looking perky and lush, especially as the summer wears on. Cut back up to ⅓ of the growth if the plant seems overgrown and follow up with fertilizer to promote new growth.

Cake Pops® Pink Tuberous Verbena Plant Spacing

The Cake Pops™ Pink Tuberous Verbena is a mounding plant, so it will grow to be full and somewhat large. A healthy, mature plant can be 10 to 18 inches tall and just as wide. Verbena rigida planted in the ground should be spaced 8 to 12 inches apart, and a 12-inch pot can accommodate 2 plants.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
