the one with the purple flowers! Think it may be a verbena but not sure - many thanks




It looks like Erisymum Bowles Mauve to me.

I have one too. You can expect it to make much growth this season. They big up fast towards their full size. Often referred to as a short lived perennial. Great for insects, bees. I keep mine trimmed and manacured with snippers, but you can let it grow looser.

Look for a non flowering shoot, peel it back from the main plant it should come away with a 'heel' if you then plant that in a pot it will root, or i have even rooted them in a glass of water!
