Lightly spined upright evergreen shrub from South America that fills that critical need of having a woody member of the Verbena family in the garden.  Light lavender tubular flowers with a flare corolla tip and lavender berries follow.  The small leaves have some texture working for them with deeply impressed veins. These are from cuttings from an old plant in North Vancouver BC.
