Veronica longifolia ‘Candied Candle’

Tall Speedwell

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.540.770

A more compact selection of the Tall Speedwell, making a great display in the summer garden, and exceptional for cutting. Plants form a bushy, upright clump of bright green leaves, bearing long branching spikes of burgundy-red flowers throughout most of the summer months. Good garden performer. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. Always a good idea to leave space between plants to provide for proper air circulation. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
