Verbena bonariensis

Just beginning to bloom in my plot at Floyd Bennett. I hope this one is on the Herbaceous ID test. I might not know how to spell it, but it would be pretty sad if I couldn't ID something growing in my own garden. I like this plant because it's known to freely set seed, so I may have some seedlings next year to give away. One of the great joys of gardening I've learned is having some loot to pass on. It's nerdy, but true. It's a great joy to just give someone a cucumber you've grown.
