How to care for Verbena's

I'm new to gardening and purchased a hanging pot of verbenas. I want to know how I care for it. When I first got it I put some liquid plant food in it. Now I want to know how often I should water it and does it need to be in direct sunlight or can it be in a shaded area? I have mine hanging under my patio.

Here in Missouri they take full sun, with maybe a little afternoon shade. I water when the soil feels dry in my container plants.

Thanks Patsy. I just want my flowers to bloom as long as possible.

Found one self seeded up in the canyons around the springs in Palm Springs, so you know they like dryer conditions...
