Raspberry Trailing Verbena
Verbena 'Tukana Raspberry'
This Verbena was introduced in 2008 and we just happened to plant some not knowing it was new. It passed our little trial with flying colors as it bloomed profusely and had a nice habit. It grew well in the big container garden and several 4.5 inch pots turned into a carpet of color trailing down the sides of the pots.
This red Verbena, which I think is from the same series, mixed well with the white Marigolds and a flaming red Mandevilla vine. All in all the combination worked out well after a bit of a rough start.
Temperatures are due to be near sixty degrees (F) today, which means back to work. It is nice break from the cold weather we had over the weekend. So far it is shaping up to be a typical New England winter.
