Aztec™ Wild Rose Verbena
  • Excellent powdery mildew tolerance – needs fewer chemical applications. 
  • Fast off the bench and on to retail stores. 
  • Expanded color range for easy “one-stop” shopping. 
  • Performs beautifully in baskets, mono and mixed containers.

NEW Burgundy Wink and Violet Wink bring an exciting new eye type to the
series, with big contrast and no fading under high light. Well matched in
timing and habit to the rest of the series.
NEW Violet Improved has more upright habit, stronger color and more
flowering due to better branching.

Burgundy rated Excellent at Oregon State University, 2011.
