Kathy’s Kandy is a unique selection of our native Rose Verbena. It was named by its discoverer Kathy Andrews of Jackson, TN. She found it growing wild in her pasture in Carroll County. It is a tough butterfly-attracting perennial with pretty pink flowers. Kathy’s Kandy blooms for a longer period than the species and has a noticeable sweet fragrance. This selection’s leaves seem a bit smaller and darker than the native species as well. It tolerates a fair amount of drought and isn’t that picky as to soil type.
