This is 'Homestead Purple'. The garden books say I can take cuttings from this and will have the same plant, next year.
In the south, it just came back. I don't know about cuttings, though. Where would I keep them? I would love to be able to do it, but I don't trust myself!
He looks a little ratty because we have had a hard freeze...


  1. I Google Verbena and found this info (hightlight and place in browser):
    The first 5-6 seconds shows you exactly how to take/root cuttings. It looks easy.

  2. Why not give it a go Sissy, if it doesn't work out you're no worse off, taking cuttings won't harm the plant. Go to the address Sandra sent you and just do what it says.

    It would be fun to try a cutting. Maybe keep it in a jar of water on your window sill?
    Or put it in a pot of dirt and plant it outside next spring.

    so sorry to hear about the young people that died in the car crash. My heart goes out to their families.


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
