    You’re welcome Jim! Appreciate the confirmed ID and the link with great pictures of the Brazilian verbena. Yes, I would love to see “the prettiest purple blossomsÉ” that you found. Laura

    That sure does look like it. I think you’re right. Thanks! I’ll have to post the shorter Verbena I’ve found to see if you can figure out the genus. It’s got the prettiest purple blossoms…

    Maybe a species of the Verbena genus, possible the Brazilian verbena (Verbena brasiliensis)? Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes! http://www.alabamaplants.com/Blueopp/Verbena_brasiliensis_page.html
