Verbena Hastata Blue
This lovely, bone hardy, long flowering plant from Nova Scotia has many-branching candelabra type flower-heads, each spike of flowers slowly expanding as it ascends the stems, just like sparklers burning but in reverse. This is a valuable addition in that rarely seen true-blue colour. You may discover the occasional pink-coloured variant amongst the seedlings and these should be removed on flowering.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
