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.
