Verbena bonariensis, a perennial herb originating in South America, grows to 2m in height and branches well. Stems are 4-ridged and hollow, with bristles and some simple leaves, the largest measuring 13cm long. The leaves are simple, opposite, in a lanceolate shape, with hairs on the back sides and bases embracing the stems. Stem tips give branching spikes with dense flowers; corollas are tubular with tips cleft in five. As the flowering advances, the inflorescences grow longer. Bloom time: April-October.
