I'm Travis Steglich with Steglich Farm Supply and we're going to take some cuttings of verbena. It's perennial you can this is January and it is green still it makes a beautiful purple pinkish kind of a bloom that blooms in August. When everything else is dead and not blooming this stuff right here will be blooming. What I'm going to do is get down in here and take a few cuttings of this plant that we're going to take back and we are going to root them in the greenhouse hopefully. This plant will produce at each of these junctures, each of these terminals would produce roots. As a matter a fact you can see one protruding right there it's a little bump anyway this stuff roots down and it's easily grown from cuttings. So we're going to take a few sprigs of this back to the greenhouse and we're going to set them up to grow in the plants this spring.
