http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3348813/How-to-grow-Verbena-rigida.html has a sowing and growing guide.

These are the Thompson and Morgan sowing instructions:

* Aftercare : Easy
* Ideal for : Bedding, Cottage Gardens, Patios
* Special Features : Scented
* Height : 24 inches

Description
Dense 5cm (2in) clusters of purple fragrant flowers and dark green leaves. Adds height and interest to bedding displays. Lift tubers in autumn. Height: 30-60cm (1-2ft).
Sowing Instructions
Sow in trays, pots, etc of good seed compost in a propagator or warm place to maintain an optimum temperature of 70-75F (20-25C). Surface sow and just cover with vermiculite and exclude light. Sowing Time: February to March. After covering the seed with vermiculite give a very light spray using only half the water you would give to other seeds. Too much wet will result in poor germination.
