Statuesque NA Native
This statuesque beauty grows tall, but its vase-like habit allows for placement in the back of small borders. The slender lilac-rose flower spikes in mid-summer rise from tall lance-shaped lacy foliage for a candelabra-like effect on each branching tip. No support stakes needed if grown in full sun. Veronicastrum Fascination is a North American native plant that typically was found in thickets and moist meadows. Flower spires will bloom from the top down in early summer and attract beneficial pollinators.

Veronicastrum General Information

Veronicastrum resemble a large veronica, except its lance-shaped leaves are in whorls (3-7 leaves per whorl) on the stems rather than opposite each other. Dense, spikes (racemes) of tiny flowers open from the top down on strong, upright stems. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Veronicastrum Plant Care

Cut back Veronicastrum plants to basal growth after flowering to stimulate new foliage and possibly a later rebloom. Native to moist meadows in North America but still needs well-drained soil. Strong stems usually do not require staking.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
