What Houzz contributors are saying:

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.Botanical name: Verbena bonariensisUSDA zones: 7 to 10Water requirement: Medium moisture, well-drained soilsLight requirement: Full sun to partial shadeMature size: 2 to 4 feet tall and 1 1/2 to 3 feet wide

Verbena bonariensis is an airy perennial flower in the southern part of the U.S., and though it freely self-seeds, it is not considered invasive.
Tall Verbena(Verbena bonariensis)Native to South AmericaCan be invasive in parts of the U.S. SoutheastPerhaps of all flowers, this verbena has become the signature plant of the Chelsea Flower Show over the past 10 years. Flowers are held high, up to 6 feet above the ground, bringing another level to any planting scheme. Though normally grown as a perennial, it will easily self-seed and populate an area, bringing drifts of purple flowers from summer into autumn. It prefers to grow in full sun, and its roots need to be in a well-drained yet moisture-retentive soil.

Nasturtiums are some of my favorite flowering annuals (plants that live only for one season) to mix in with vegetables. They are very common and can be bought at any local nursery. Their leaves are as beautiful as the flower.
