This Verbena hybrid produces bright red, white-centered large globes of flowers. It will stand out in any sunny to partially sunny area of your garden from spring to hard frost. The brightly colored flowers contrast nicely with its pointy, textured medium green foliage. This short plant reaches 6 to 12 inches in height with an 18 to 30-inch spread at maturity. It grows in a mounding trailing habit.

Verbena Superbena Scarlet Star can be used as a flowering ground cover, in the front section of garden beds, or as a spiller plant in container gardens. It will trail up to 24 inches in a container garden making it a great choice for window boxes and patio or porch planters. They pair well with other plants that produce brightly colored flowers. This verbena attracts butterflies, drought-tolerant, and resists mildew and deer.

Superbena® Scarlet Star Verbena Care

This top-performing award winner is easy to care for. It’s self-cleaning, so deadheading is not necessary for continuous blooms to appear. Verbena Superbena Scarlet Star has average water and soil fertility requirements. In garden beds, it can tolerate dry soils. Amend the soil in garden beds with compost or a slow-release fertilizer before planting. Regularly fertilize container-grown plants according to the directions on the package for more vigorous growth and flower production. Trimming is not necessary, but a slight trim will encourage branching and fuller plants.

Verbena Superbena Scarlet Star is typically grown as an annual. It is hardy in USDA planting zones 8 through 11. It may not do well as a houseplant, but it may survive under grow lights.

Superbena® Scarlet Star Verbena Spacing

Space plants 10 to 14 inches apart in the ground. Space them at least 8 inches apart in a container garden.

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.
