April 12th - from a sunny spot in S.Devon - my Verbena Bonariensis looks completely dead, presumably killed by the wet cold winter. It was planted last year near a west-facing wall. Is there any hope at all that new shoots might still appear from the base?

On plant Verbena bonariensis



I'm in West Somerset and I'd say I've lost about half of mine. There are tiny shoots appearing on the live ones, and the dead ones pulled out with a gentle tug. Try it - I did say GENTLE!!! lol. You might yet be surprised, but I'm a little doubtful, I'm afraid.

with luck you will have lots of self sown seedlings though. I have lost quite a few of mine too.

Didn't realise that S. Devon was a day ahead of the rest of the UK ;-)

LOL. Different country down here in the SW, Fractal!

I think you'll find they're a week ahead, Fractal, well, of the midlands anyway. Spring starts there and works its way up and across the country...
