Verbena rigida, commonly known as "Slender Vervain" or "Tall Verbena," is a hardy herbaceous perennial that adds a vibrant burst of color to gardens in the Irish climate. With its slender stems, vibrant purple flowers, and attractive foliage, this plant is a popular choice among gardeners.

Height/Spread: Verbena rigida typically grows to a height of about 30-60 cm (12-24 inches) and has a spread of approximately 45-60 cm (18-24 inches). Its upright growth habit and branching nature create a compact yet airy appearance.

Position: In the Irish climate, Verbena rigida thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers a position that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Placing it in a sunny location allows the plant to produce an abundance of vibrant flowers and promotes healthy growth.

Soil: This plant prefers well-draining soil with a moderate fertility level. It can tolerate various soil types, including sandy or loamy soils. However, it is essential to ensure that the soil doesn't become waterlogged, as Verbena rigida is susceptible to root rot in overly wet conditions.

Flowering Season: Verbena rigida blooms from mid-summer through early autumn, providing a profusion of small, rich purple flowers. The flowering period extends for several weeks, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies to the garden.

Uses: In the Irish climate, Verbena rigida serves multiple purposes in garden designs. It is an excellent choice for borders, rock gardens, and containers, adding a splash of color and texture. The compact form and long-lasting flowers make it suitable for mass plantings or as a groundcover in sunny areas. Additionally, its attractiveness to pollinators contributes to the ecological diversity of the garden.

Overall, Verbena rigida is a versatile and visually appealing perennial that can thrive in the Irish climate. With its compact growth habit, vibrant purple flowers, and ability to tolerate different soil types, it offers gardeners an excellent option for creating colorful displays throughout the summer and early autumn seasons.
