  • Quartz XP verbenas are more uniform with overall longer garden performance than competing varieties.
  • Delivers a tight, 7-day flowering window, earlier and significantly better branching, and reduced internode length. 
  • Strong seed quality, high germination and great young plant vigour assure superior performance in packs and 4-in./10-cm pots.
  • Slightly spreading, mounded plants make brilliant beds and trail over the edges of mixed containers.

 
Fits the series for habit and timing, and holds its colour better in high light landscapes.
