Veronica ‘Aspire’

Hybrid Speedwell

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.540.870

An outstanding hybrid Speedwell that forms a bushy, compact, upright clump of dark-green leaves, bearing upright wands of deep rose flower spikes throughout the summer. Removing faded spikes will encourage more buds to form. Stems are excellent for cutting. More compact than other selections, so should not need to be staked. Likely hardy to Zone 3 or colder. Wonderful in borders, mixed containers or use as a small area ground cover. Introduced by Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc., Oregon. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
