Great photo!Are you Montreal based or were you just visiting?
I agree that is one great combo!
I have had a love affair with Verbena b. since my days at Longwood Gardens in 1986. It does not like Charleston, SC and I pine to have this view somewhere near. Guess I will have to view a link to get my fix. Thanks!
Lovely combination. I recently saw white tobacco plant, Nicotiana sylvestris with Verbena bonariensis in a formal box edged garden in Northumbria which was lovely too.Best wishes Sylvia
Thanks all!Allanbecker: Just visiting, I live in Portland, OR :-)Zoey: Thanks!Compost: Me too...I love it so much, seeing planting like this make me want even more of it!Sylvia: That sounds like a lovely combination!
Thanks for sharing this photo Scott. I have some low growing miscanthus that could use some color interest--hello verbena!
bonariensis seems to work with just about anything. It's a good thing, too, because it seeds around like crazy.
That is an interesting and gorgeous combo I would of never thought of, thanks for sharing! :)
Wow! That's a lovely photo indeed. I thought it's partly your skill in taking the photo which brought out the beauty of the combination.
I love verbena bonariensis and there are not too many plants that can act as combination ones due to its height but this sure fits the bill. Its a lovely combination and great photograph.

Very pretty. Reminiscent of a fireworks display.
Love this. Am just doing a mass planting of pennisetum rubrum in the UK. Do you know how it fairs in the winter?Many thanksElspethMyGardenSchool
Hi Elspeth!I'm not sure what zone you are, but I think it's only hardy to zone 9 (or 10). Sadly, not hardy for us here in PDX (Zone 8), so it's grown as an annual here. I do think there is a variety on the market that shares some of the red coloring and is hardier...but the name escapes me. I figure, with all the breeding going on, it's only a matter of time before we have a truly hardy version that matches rubrum for it's beauty!
