Another great color in the Royale series, Superbena Violet Ice gives you gorgeous violet purple flowers for your hanging baskets or landscape. A white eye and bright green foliage provide a delightful contrast to the purple flowers. Superbena sports larger flowers and umbels giving you an outstanding display with superior disease resistance and heat tolerance. A win-win for your spring to fall garden.
Native to the Americas, verbena thrive in Zones 8a through 11b where summers are hot and sunny days are long. In Zones 2-7 you can set these out as annuals after the danger of the last frost has passed and enjoy a continuous display of blooms until frost in the fall. Superbenas tolerate summer heat, and do not flush out of bloom when it gets hot. They are not attractive to deer.
Superbena® Violet Ice Verbena Care
Superbenas thrive in full sun, will appreciate some shade in the hottest climates and they require high amounts of light to produce blooms. Not a fussy annual, superbenas will thrive in poor soil with average pH of 5.8 to 6.2, and on an average water availability, but providing them with a slow release fertilizer and a regular watering schedule will help them be at their best. Amend clay soils to improve drainage as superbenas do not like wet feet. Fertilize container plants on a regular schedule for optimal performance.
Superbenas are an improved hybrid of verbena and do not require deadheading. They are self cleaning and do not require pruning although they can be sheared to increase branching which will increase blooms. It is a low mounding trailing annual that works great as a ground cover and also performs wonderfully as a container plant in combination with other full sun loving annual flowers and foliage.
Superbena® Violet Ice Verbena Spacing
Due to the mounding trailing habit, superbenas require planting 10 to 14 inches apart. Growing up to 12 inches tall and spreading out up to 30 inches, they make a wonderful ground cover. If planted in a container, they can trail up to 24 inches. Pairing Superbena Violet Ice with nemesia, petunia, sutera, alyssum and their companion colors of superbena creates incredible hanging basket or container plantings for your porch or patio as the cool violet color works with any color combination you can imagine.
