Veronica ‘Perfectly Picasso’

Spike Speedwell

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.541.020

Spike Speedwell is the most popular of the various Veronicas available. This selection features a rounded, bushy clump of medium-green leaves, bearing upright spikes of white buds that open to medium pink flowers, appearing bi-coloured. Blooms mid through late summer but removing faded spikes will keep plants in flower longer. Excellent for cutting. Being of medium height makes it perfect for the middle of the border. Easily divided in fall or early spring. Growing plants in a moist site will help to keep powdery-mildew in check. Flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
