Verbena (Garden Verbena, Vervain)

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Verbena (Garden Verbena, Vervain)
  • Latin Name: Verbena x hybrida
  • Family Name: Verbenaceae

Although we can find no evidence of toxicity or harmful properties for most species of  Verbena, we feel it is best to be cautious and feed only sparingly as part of a varied diet.

Some sources say that one species of Verbena (Verbena bonariensis) common names (Purpletop Vervain, Tall Verbena) is toxic and should not be fed, so ensure that you have correctly identified your plant.

Do not confuse with Lantana (Shrub Verbena) which is toxic.
