Gorgeous, long-flowering Verbena. A haze of purple throughout late summer until the first frosts. This is a stunning cottage garden flower, tall, light and airy; attracting butterflies and bees by producing a late source of nectar for them.
A great low-maintenance plant, ideal for cottage gardens or prairie-style planting. It is elegant and statuesque, yet informal and free….perfect for the back of a border and as a cut flower in a relaxed arrangement.
I love it with so many flowers but it is particularly gorgeous when grown alongside Rudbeckia. Verbena Bonariensis is a perennial but it can struggle over winter. Leave the dead stalks until spring and give it a good mulch as we head into winter to help protect it.
Seed Quantity 250 Seeds
Genus Verbena bonariensis
Sow Seeds Sow undercover in February-March or direct from April. If sowing directly make sure the bed is warm and weed-free. Likes full sun or partial shade and moist well-drained soil. Self-seeds freely if left.

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt
Quickly dispatched and delivered. Arrived safely. Nicely labelled clearly with instructions on how to sow. Can’t go wrong. Would definitely order from again.
Arrived on Time and loved the packaging. About to sow some seeds and hopefully for some chillies in Summer
Excellent arrived safely beautifully boxed.
Looking forward to sowing these seeds soon.
Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
