*Verbena tenuisecta  Moss Verbena
PERENNIAL.  Trailing stems have finely dissected leaves that are smooth or very slightly hairy, and nearly evergreen.  Round clusters of pinkish-purple flowers bloom in March-May and again after summer rains.  Escaped from cultivation but not invasive.  Similar to several native species.  Pollinated by white-lined sphinx moths (Hyalophora lineata).  Gambel's quail eat the seeds.  In the Empires, occasional in semi-shaded sandy washes.
