Rafter O Wild Verbena

Rafter O Wild Verbena

Breed: Mini Nubian 3rd gen

Date of Birth: 03-23-21
G6S Normal by Parentage

Verbena has it all!  She is blue-eyed, polled, and has the unique Cou Clair color pattern – and an excellent pedigree!  Her dam, Clover, is a beautiful two-tone chamoisee doeling with blue eyes.  She is very feminine and has a great topline and overall conformation.  Clover’s pedigree is outstanding on both sides.  Verbena’s grand dam, Clair, comes from top Nubian herds.  Her sire, Memphis, put great width on his kids, and his dam, Tootsie, just earned her milk star!

Verbena did very well in the Hill Country Mini Milker Texas Two-Step in May 2022 – winning her age class. She will be bred for Spring 2023 kids.

Name Origin

Wild Verbena

Prairie Verbena has gently rounded clusters of bilaterally symmetrical pink, lavender, or purple flowers bloom atop stems with highly divided leaves. The Spanish name, Moradilla, comes from morado (“purple”) and means “little purple one.” This plant often forms brilliant displays of pink or light purple, covering acres of ground. It is a variable complex, with some plants tall and pink-flowered, others more matted, and with lavender or purple flowers; the two forms are usually found in separate areas. The genus Glandularia is closely related to Verbena, differing conspicuously in its round-topped clusters of showy flowers; in some references, this species is listed as Verbena ambrosifolia.

This species is a member of the verbena family (family Verbenaceae), which includes about 75 genera and 3,000 species of herbs, shrubs, and trees, mostly of tropical and warm temperate regions. Among them, teak is a highly prized furniture wood, and Vervain, Lantana, Lippia or Frog Fruit are grown as ornamentals.
