Long Blooming Deep Purple/Blue
Flower spikes of Veronica First Glory are shorter and thicker than traditional Veronica spikes, providing long blooming deep purple/blue hues to the mid border. Will rebloom if spent flowers are removed. Florets open on spikes from the base upwards for long-blooming color. Butterfly and flower-arranger friendly. So much to recommend! Easy to grow, low maintenance, deer resistant, great cut flowers and adored by butterflies. Veronica is a must-have plant.

Veronica General Information

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Veronica Plant Care

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.
