Purple pink flowerheads - a magnet for bees and butterflies

Bred from a variety initially found in Devon (explaining the name, Brampton), this Verbena has since become widely loved for its purple pink blooms. Each flower sit atop slender, muted green stems - creating beautiful movement which we consider very appropriate for a wild garden. Under the light, the foliage of this Verbena features an almost silver sheen! Aside from being happy in sunny spots with lime-rich soil, this cultivar is a magnet for bees and butterflies too.

About your Plant

Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.

Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.

Packaging

Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.

Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:

Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.

Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.

Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
