Speedwell is the perfect choice for gardeners with limited time – carefree and low maintenance. Thick rosy-purple flower wands conjure a spell-binding balance of flowers and foliage. The deep green foliage is clean and attractive even after this charmer has finished blooming.

Plant Veronica Purple Illusion 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 can’t seem to stay away.
