Nectar Rich Flowers for Pollinators
This variety brings violet purple to the garden and walks a nice line between the pink or blue tones of other Speedwell. The tall tapered spikes guide butterflies and hummingbirds right to their nectar-rich flowers. Floriferous and long blooming above narrow lance-shaped bushy foliage. The positive attributes of Speedwell such as easy to grow, low maintenance, deer resistant, great cut flowers and adored by butterflies make Veronica Purpleicious a must-have plant.

Long-lasting color. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.
