Tapien® Trailing Verbena
Tapien® Verbenas make the perfect groundcover, carpeting an area up to 3 feet wide and crowding out weeds. Constantly in bloom, they’re impervious to heat, humidity and light frosts, thriving where other verbenas fail. Extraordinary in hanging baskets, too.
Tapien® is the fine-leaved Verbena hybrid from the Suntory® Collection Europe. This colorful Verbena is available in a wide range of colors and gives a rich carpet of flowers throughout the season. Tapien® blooms continuously from spring to autumn and is a strong and sturdy plant. Tapien® is unmatched in its resistance to powdery mildew thanks to innovative breeding by Suntory® Flowers Ltd. Tapien® is suitable for baskets, balcony baskets and for use as a bedding plant.
