Production Tips for Growers: Tapien & Temari Verbenas


Tapien verbenas are day-neutral plants, but flowering will occur more rapidly under warmer conditions. Suntory started another revolution with the Tapien and Temari verbenas, being the first two of a major series of vegetatively propagated verbenas. Tapien is the groundcover series that produces a multitude of blooms from early spring to late fall. Six colors are available: Blue-Violet, Lilac, Pink, Purple, Salmon, and Pure White. These plants are very adaptable to pots, baskets, window boxes, and landscapes. Presentation of this verbena is best in 4-inch, quarts, and gallons. In warmer areas growers will see Tapien flower throughout the year producing beautiful blooms. In California, Tapien Blue-Violet is possibly the best selling verbena on the market, according to Danny Takao, of Takao Nursery. Suntory’s Temari verbenas became the model for all large-flowered verbena series in the world. Growers can choose from a trailing habit or the more upright patio habit. Plants are continuously upgraded for summer performance and disease resistance. Gorgeous jewel tones include Cherry Red, Blue, Indigo and Burgundy.
