This is a must have plant if like me you like a cottage style, wildlife friendly border. Although it can get rather tall - mine was about 2m last year - its slender stems are fairly see through. I grew it with Oxeye Daisies and the border was full of bees, hoverflies and butterflies.

Re: Verbena bonariensis

Reply from Ann Brooks

I am new to gardening and planted up two verbena Bonariensis this June which have both done beautifully well. I had no idea that they would grow so tall or that the flowers would last through to the very first hard frosts. They have been a total joy to have in the garden.The trouble is I'm not sure now what to do to look after them properly through the winter months. Should I cut them back and if so when and by how much?
