Coral Pastels Donalena Verbena is a very floriferous trailing variety that produces an abundance of pretty, multi-color flowers in colors ranging from soft to dark coral. Verbena is probably one of the best plants for attracting butterflies..they love the flowers!

Plant Verbena in containers or garden beds that provide well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. In garden beds, raised or mounded beds are best. In containers, I always use a professional potting MIX rather than a cheap grade potting SOIL. Verbena needs at least 6 hours of sun per day to perform its best. When growing verbena in containers, you'll have to monitor soil moisture a little more closely throughout the season than plants growing in garden beds.

Verbena can be trimmed any time during the growing season to keep plants tidy or in bounds. In beds I don't bother deadheading spent flowers. In containers, I remove spent flowers occasionally throughout the season. This help to keep plants fuller and encourages more flowers.

I fertilize verbena at planting time with a slow-release pelletized flower food. Sometimes I'll give them a second dose of a mild organic fertilizer in mid-summer.

Consistently wet or soggy soils can be a killer. On rare occasion I've seen white flies visit verbena. If this happens, spray them with Malathion insecticide and then again in 72 hours. Verbena need lots of sun, especially morning sun to dry the dew from the leaves. In shade they can develop powdery mildew.
