Veronicastrum virginicum ‘Erica’


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.542.080

An outstanding selection of a North American native wildflower, deserving a special spot in any sunny border. This forms a tall, bushy clump of dark-green leaves, bearing huge branching spikes of red buds that open into tiny soft-pink blooms. Flowering starts midsummer and continues into the autumn. Terrific as a cut flower. Attractive to butterflies.
