High verbena is best cut back in spring. Spring is also the best time for planting. Plant 10 to 12 verbenas per square metre. Soil that is well drained (humus or compost with sand) is best. They also tolerate loam if you add a little sand. In the pot or in the planting tray, give them standard soil. In the open and in pots you should water and water sometimes. Bees and butterflies like to eat the nectar of the perennial. Verbena bonariensis Lollipop is a hardy perennial that will thrive if you protect its roots with pine branches, leaves or mulch in winter. Potted plants can be overwintered in a frost-free room or in a protected corner on wood or polystyrene.

The robust, bee-friendly verbenas fit well as steppe plants in a prairie garden or perennial garden. The colourful verbena is also popular in medicinal plant gardens and herb gardens; it is also called saga herb or wishing herb. It is an ingredient in lactic teas, helps heal wounds, coughs, sleeping problems and rheumatism. Fragrant Patagonian vervain is nice in combination with rod millet or coneflower
