Couple of days of rain and now sun is shining again.
Water butts are full again.
Verbena Bonariensis is one of my favourite flowers in the garden. Flowers forever and has delicate foliage so you can see through it so no need to put this tall plant to the back of the border.
Some people can not grow this, for others, like me, it grows like a weed and survives the winter, despite our being in a frost pocket. Verbena Bonariensis flowers for ages, loved by bees and butterflies and I leave the seed heads over winter, food for the birds and then lots of new plants for the next year. If you grow it and do not want a garden full then dead head it in the autumn.
