I bought these verbenas thinking they don't need deadheading but there is something wrong with them and I don't understand if they need to be cleaned from the dead flowers or if there is something else they are suffering from. They are watered every day and get full sun enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description here


Verbenas do need deadheading really, particularly the annual kinds such as yours - they look a lot tidier if they are deadheaded, removing the long stems with the spent flowers on the end, and this will encourage the plant to produce more flowers.
