help me identify this flower

KywittMarch 28, 2011

I had this plant last year before I moved to college and I would like to have it again, problem is that I have no idea what it was, only that i got it at a nursery on the way back from a family friend's in Oregon.

it was small, and comes in a dark purple/blue, (maybe) white as well as the red in the lovely blurry picture I happened to have on my phone. it wasn't very big, it stood upright, and I think was very leafy.

it also basically took care of itself as long as it got water (which allowed me to swell with a noobish sense of gardening pride)

the closest match I found online was red southwestern mock vervain, but it's petals are more bilabial than my plant, and it's purple variety is more of a lilac. and you can't get it anywhere.

anyways, if anyone knows what this is (and possibly where i can get some) that would be great.

Looks like a Lanai Upright Magenta Verbena.
I may be wrong as to the exact variety but it is deffinitely a verbena one of my favorite flowers.
