Longest Spikes of Lavender Blue
An answer to a space dilemma! Add vertical contrast and texture without using much horizontal landscape. Long flower spikes cover the top half of the dark green dense foliage. Plant Veronica Blue Skywalker in any well-drained spot in your sunny border. Now sit back and watch as it yields countless flower spikes beginning in mid-summer. Flower wands open from the base to the tips for long-blooming flower power. Dark green, bushy mounds of sturdy foliage is not a favorite of deer; however, hummingbirds and butterflies canít seem to stay away.
