Stick Verbena


This unusual Verbena thrives in my gardens! It's such a funny-looking, unusual plant! Tiny clusters of wee purple blooms sit atop stick-like stems in opposite pairs -- and leaves that stick straight out!! What a conversation piece! LOL

LIn, I hear the birds love these plants! Nice drawing too!

That is an unusual verbena. But I like it! :-)

I know that verbena, it is a weird variety, I have to say, it's to "sticky" for my tastes. You did a nice job drawing it! Maybe that is what it's good for along with being a conversation piece.

Cool drawing, Lin. What media are you using?

Laura said...

I love this plant and had it in my garden for years--but it got powdery mildew, which is odd for a verbena. Your sketch is 1000% accurate!

Great sketch Lin. I always love the little inside information on your sketches.

Nice verbena Lin. And, I like the lilac and crochet tribute to your mom. I am having "Lilac dinner" for some women friends today -- just to celebrate that they are out!

Bonariensis?
We grow it here, too ... it's beautiful
