The veronica is in full bloom in the display garden! They provide us with a long season of bloom from early to late summer in a range of colors from white to pink, purple to blue.
In recent years, Veronica Royal Candles has become a particular favorite here at the nursery. Masses of purple-blue spikes rise up above the dense dark green foliage on compact plants. Royal Candles is an excellent choice for the perennial border or in rock gardens because of its shorter stature and compact habit. For those of you that have tried veronica in the past and have been disappointed with foliage die out at the base, I am happy to report that Royal Candles does not share this trait!
Here’s the dirt on Veronica:
These deer resistant, salt tolerant perennials thrive in full sun and moist, well-drained soils. They grow to be 12-15” Tall and 10-15” wide. Deadhead to extend the bloom. Plant with some of our other favorites for a nice combination. Rudbeckia Goldsturm, Hemerocalis Happy Returns, Asclepias tuberosa and Coreopsis Moonbeam all make excellent companions for Veronica.
