Veronicastrum virginicum ‘Cupid’

An outstanding eastern North American native wildflower, deserving of a special spot in any sunny border. This selection forms a tall, bushy clump of deep green leaves, bearing stocky, branching, lilac-blue candelabra-like flower spikes. Flowering starts midsummer and continues into the autumn. Outstanding as a cut flower. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Attractive to butterflies. Beautiful at the waterside.
