Verbena x hybrida
Start inside 8-10 weeks before last frost. Lightly cover seed, provide darkness and warmth, 18-24°C (65-75°F). Germination may take 3-4 weeks. Do not keep too moist as Verbena is susceptible to dampening off. A fungicidal drench may be helpful in preventing damping off. Transplant after last frost in a full sun location, 8-10 inches apart. Will die from mildew if planted in the shade or denied good air circulation. Water and deadhead regularly.
