Desert Sand Verbena
Mojave and Sonoran deserts of southeastern California, southern Nevada, western Arizona and northwest Mexico.
Sandy flats, dunes and desert roadsides below 1,500 feet.
Bright pink, trumpet-shaped, 5-lobed, fragrant flowers, 2 to 3 inches wide, bloom February through May.
Desert Sand Verbena are sticky, hairy creepers that have flower stalks up to 10 inches long, with stems trailing up to 3 feet. Leaves are oval with wavy edges 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches long. Sand Verbena can carpet desert washes for miles after abundant winter rains
