Description

This vigorous and vibrant Veronica is one of the best we have seen and flowers for the longest – from May through to September. Its bright purple candles are held on strong stems above compact mounds of lance-shaped, toothed leaves on bushy, well-branching plants. Flowering reliably in its first year, rarely bothered by pests and diseases and superbly hardy, it makes a low maintenance but floriferous perennial for the front of the border where it will attract plenty of bees and butterflies. Height: 35cm (14”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Sowing
Pot up Veronica plants and grow them on in warm, frost-free conditions until plants are well grown. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting out in their final positions. Choose a sunny or semi-shaded position in moist, fertile, well drained soil. Veronica prefers a fertile, humus rich soil so work some well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil prior to planting.
How to Grow
Deadhead faded veronica flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, cut back old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant.
