Verbena bonariensis
Tall and airy, this spikey purple flower (verbena on a stick) re-seeds and looks great with nearly any other plant.  Fabulous with Tiger eye sumac.

'Leilani' and 'Blue Horizon' are the taller varieties.  These are great re-seeders combined in a mixed border.  Easy to maintain with a great periwinkle blue color.

Nicotiana alata
Another great re-seeder, this tall white nicotiana is perfect added to the garden with it's large foliage and bloom that attracts hummingbirds.  Easy to maintain.
