Veronica ‘Blue Bomb’

Hybrid Speedwell

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.540.860

A hybrid Speedwell (aka Austrian Speedwell) that forms a bushy mound of narrow green leaves, bearing upright wands of bright blue flowers, looking very Astilbe-like, for weeks on end, starting in early summer. Removing faded spikes regularly will encourage more buds to form. Excellent for cutting. Attractive to butterflies. Quite possibly hardy to Zone 3. USPP#22509: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
