stringy Verbena

Ginny2837(6)June 24, 2012

I planted Verbena in one of my containers and it is so spindly that it falls over. The top of the stem is healthy and full, but buds are very small. I added Osmacote when I planted and the rest of the container is doing well. I just moved the container to a more sunny spot on my deck. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Verbenas are trailing. That's their nature. Full sun is what they like. Keep them deadheaded and you can also pinch the vines shorter. How are they doing now?
