Enjoy beautiful flowers all summer long with the Cake Pops™ Purple Tuberous Verbena. This plant is native to North America, particularly the southern U.S., so it can easily take on high heat and humidity, all while looking stunning. Tiny, fragrant flowers grow in an inflorescence or cluster at the end of long stems. The purple variety boasts lavender blooms that maintain consistent color throughout the spring, summer, and fall.

Oblong green foliage creates a full appearance that rounds out the look of this mounding plant. Verbena is common in borders, landscapes, and containers, and it is an excellent filler plant. This durable plant can handle high heat and humidity and is drought-tolerant. It welcomes pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds while not being so hospitable to deer. The Cake Pops™ Purple Tuberous Verbena can be found in USDA zones 7, 8, 9, and 10 as a perennial, and it is grown as an annual in other zones.

Cake Pops® Purple Tuberous Verbena Plant Care

This low-maintenance plant flourishes with little care, although minor attention will ensure it continues to thrive all season long. Plant in full sun to ensure optimal growth. Water when the top layer of the soil feels moist. Established plants may not need water very often, but container-grown Verbena will likely need water every few days. Use well-draining soil with 6.1 - 7.5 pH. Feed plants in the spring and again midsummer. Container plants need to be fed every 2 months.

Remove spent flowers to keep a neat appearance. This plant may look tired or overgrown halfway through the summer, so give it an overall trim to freshen it up and promote new growth.

Cake Pops® Purple Tuberous Verbena Plant Spacing

A healthy Verbena will be about as wide as tall, so expect the plant to be about 10 to 18 inches all around. Space plants 8 to 12 inches apart when in the ground, and a 12-inch pot is large enough for 2 plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
