Foliage disappears under dramatic vividly blue flowers of exceptional color in late spring. Upright stems hold the saucer-shaped flowers of this Veronica. It is a carefree tidy plant with toothed dark green, lance-shaped foliage that looks good all season. Veronica makes a spectacular sea of vivid blue when planted in mass.
Veronica provide some of the clearest true blues available in perennials, along with rich purples, pinks, and whites. Neat tidy plants have glossy foliage and will fill in without overpowering. Long-lasting color.
Prefers evenly moist soil with good winter drainage. Can be divided every 3 years in spring or fall. To keep tidy plants, shear back by 1/2 after flowering. If not cut back in summer, prune down to basal growth in late autumn.
