    That’s lovely. I don’t suppose you could get in a little closer?

    The picture was taken two years ago, of a pinched-off stem I brought back from a jog and set in water. It is pretty close up – the container is the cap of a mouthwash bottle (only about 1″ high).
    Don’t know if the colony is still in blossom this year – it was a week or two ago. Plant grows to about 8-12″. All leaves narrowly lanceolate, with
    jagged edges.

    Verbena rigida

    Stiff verbena makes a dynamite lawn flower, but it grows too well for the flower bed… Unless you’re looking for a xeriscape plant that can completely fill a bed.

    A little more detail on the leaves (and the measurements) was what I was interested in. But I see Stone has already nailed it for you. :)
