 Enduro

Verbena Enduro Series
(Verbena x hybrida 'Enduro')

Ball FloraPlant plans on introducing a new Verbena at this years California spring plant trials.
This new 'Enduro' series is ideal for those growers who do summer plant production, as it won't blow it's flowers in the summer heat.

Being heat resistant, makes this new verbena a plant that can be used in any summer landscape design, instead of just as a container plant. This beasty is a vigorous grower, and will be available in 2013 in three colours. Purple, White Blush and Rose.

Zone: Treat as Annual
Height: 24-30cm  (9-12")
Spread: 45-60cm (18-24")
Habit: Upright Mounding
Exposure: Full Sun
Moisture: Just Moist

What I like is, since this verbena takes the heat better, it therefor also holds it's blooms longer. Plus as a bonus Endro is also, hardy into the low teens, in USA temperatures, that is.

It also comes with a catchy slogan, North, South, East and West,
   --- Enduro is tougher than the rest!
