Verbenas are native to North America, so they perform well without much help from gardeners, and the hybrid Verbena Meteor Shower (V. bonariensis) really wows. The drought-tolerant plant blooms nonstop in summer with clusters of delicate lilac-colored blooms that last for days. The flowers rise above dark green, slender foliage, packing plenty of interest in a summer annual to adorn a patio, deck or garden beds.

Verbena Meteor Shower is more compact than some verbena hybrids, reaching no more than 30 inches tall and 8 to 12 inches around. The little but upright plant suits nearly any container or landscape use, filling pots with plenty of purple color or bordering walkways and bringing butterflies and hummingbirds into the yard. The plant attracts these pollinators but is deer resistant, adding to its landscaping versatility.

Meteor Shower Verbena Care

Plant your verbena in average soil and ensure containers have drainage. Water it regularly, but avoid over-watering the plant, which can survive periods of drought. There is no need to prune or deadhead verbena. The flowers set very few seeds, so it focuses more attention on flowering and there are few worries about Meteor Shower spreading in the garden.

Although it needs no regular fertilizing, you can add compost to the planting area, or fertilize once or twice in summer with a slow-release fertilizer to keep the plant fed. This is more true of container-grown verbenas. This plant is an easy-care annual in most gardening zones and situations.

Meteor Shower Verbena Spacing

Create a carpet of light purple flowers for butterflies to land on and hummingbirds to enjoy by placing many Verbena Meteor Shower plants together. Space the plants about 8 to 12 inches apart.

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.
