Lovely herbaceous perennial with bright blue flowers on long stems, loved by bees and butterflies. Likes a moist-ish soil or at least regular rainfall or watering. Will grow in shade but may flower less.
DESCRIPTION: Clumping perennial plant suited to rockeries, borders and flowering garden beds. Flowers during summer with majestic purple spikes. PLANTING: Late Summer-Autumn and Spring in cooler areas. Use a garden fork to loosen the soil then dig through some well composted mulch. Sow seeds into trays or direct. When large enought to handle transplant to final position. CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil, veronicas don't like to dry out. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser
