Notes:

I’ve been enjoying these Verbena for several years, but just now trying to more closely identify them. Verbena Rigida maybe? I don’t know. As per Laura’s request.

    Yep. That’s what I thought too. Thanks for the confirmation! I’ve really enjoyed seeing these on my walks. Makes me want to plant them in my yard since they’re so tough and bloom all spring and summer.

    You’re welcome Jim! In my garden free wildflowers plants that coming up on their own are good anytime 🙂 not only they are “tough” they’re also super low maintenance.
