almond verbena
Common name almond verbena
Family verbenaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z8-11)
Flowers white (spring-fall)
Size 10-12'

Cultural notes well drained soil

Native to South America, with rough-surfaced grayish-green leaves. Fragrant flowers keep coming through most of the season. Root-hardy to the warmer parts of zone 7, where it acts as a die-back shrub; its habit is that of a true shrub in zones 9 and higher. We picked up a small specimen at Peckerwood Garden, where we had admired a full-grown shrub wafting its fragrance all around; it was blooming on its small frame a little more than a month later.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
