Verbena bonariensis is a unique yet stunning plant with tall, slender stems topped with clusters of rosy lavender blossoms that attract butterflies — and, it's deer resistant to boot! This plant is considered an annual outside of zones 7 to 10, but it may self-seed. It has been known to become invasive in the Deep South, so you will want to avoid using it in those areas.
