Plant This :: Verbena

When I do the bulk of my container garden shopping, in the spring, verbena has yet to really put on its show. It gets overlooked and the plants that eventually go ka-put by mid-summer win out because of what they can show me in May. As those plants now limp along and beg for morning-only Virginia sun - my newly, July-purchased verbena hasn't broken a sweat. This variety is a trailer; a draips-er - bringing a bit of sweetness to any container that comes its way.

question about tomato plaNTS TRACEY: why is one of my potted plan's leaves turning brown from the bottom leaves on up? i see some little gren guys on but it's so sad--i think it happened last year as well--any way to prevent it, my gardening guru?

Good tip -- my plants look pretty rough here all afternoon. It's very sad.
