Family: Verbenaceae


Group of plants covering trees, shrubs and climbers from tropical and temperate climates.

Great plants for ornamental gardens due to adaptability and colour variations.


All plants prefer a fertile soil and benefit from organic additions to soil (ie compost and manures) plus regular watering and fertilising.

Some will tolerate full sun all day, other preferring partial sun.


For best floral displays, ensure pruning occurs after flowering.
