Growing Calendar for Verbena Showboat Magenta - Plants x3
Delivery: Mid May to Early July
A new annual variety in magical magenta, Verbena Showboat Magenta reveals lots of large flower heads, largely packed with lots of dainty pink-magenta flowers with central white eyes.
Showboat Magenta looks stunning spilling over containers and hanging baskets. It’s a great variety to grow in your garden for annual colour and to bring in bees and ladybirds which pollinate fruit blossoms and keep aphid numbers down.
We recommend you grow this variety in attractive pots and hanging baskets positioning three young plants to a 30cm (12in) container so they make a spectacular show when flowering for June right up to October.
Verbena Showboat Magenta works well in a sunny spot or part of the garden that receives some degree of sun. If growing in containers we suggest you use a moist multi-purpose compost and keep Showboat Magenta well watered.
This new variety shows real resistance to mildew to give you flowers that thrive even in wet or sporadic summers.
