Also known as Speedwell, Veronica are upright growing plants with mounds of deep green foliage. Purpleicious only spreads 12-18 inches wide but delivers high-impact on the garden palette. When in bloom, the upright stems reach 18-20 inches in height and wave in the breeze or add height to bouquets!

Gradually opening in turn from the bottom to the top, from late spring through the heat of summer!
Purpleicious Veronica is space-saving and vibrantly colored! These perennials are notoriously cold-resistant throughout USDA growing zones 4 through 9 and are wonderfully deer and rabbit-resistant (unless they are desperate)! Very easy-to-grow herbaceous perennials, the vibrant violet-purple-lilac coloration is just what you need to liven up the landscape or enliven someone’s mood when they’re down in the dumps!
Fantastic vertical blooms for bouquets and vase arrangements, allowing you to enjoy the radiant blooms indoors as well as outside! The brilliant vertical texture lights up the garden and adds motion and texture to containers and garden beds in the sun! Veronica are traditionally found in the border garden, swaying in the breeze throughout the cottage garden, and are ideal blooms to include in a cut flower garden!
There are many uses for this Veronica in the border garden as edging or vertical stunners! That eye-popping violet hue is striking against evergreens, among silver-green leaves, and is set off by burgundy foliage. Accentuate a sunny garden bed, or as tall thrillers in pots and planters, and balcony container gardens! Veronica works well in mixed planters as fillers, in borders as low edging, or to add vibrant color to any sized garden.
Use Purpleicious Veronica as a front-of-the-border pop of color that catches the eye! Though the butterflies readily find these brilliant spires! The bright hue shines in the sun, mixes well with pink and red hues, or melds with blues and purples. Add to a Hummingbird garden with some feeders and a bird bath, and these nectar-rich blooms are no-brainer pollinator garden plants!
Speedwell is an easy-to-grow herbaceous perennial that flowers best in full sun in well-drained soil locations. Ensure Veronica gets ample moisture throughout the growing season to keep blooming despite the heat. Cover the root system with 3-4 inches of arborist mulch for moisture retention and insulation. Deadhead the blooms as soon as they fade to encourage new blooms to form. Once the foliage dies back after frost you can prune the mound close to the ground.
Order the Purpleicious Veronica and give your garden a glow-up! Add pollinator-friendly vertical spires of saturated violet color anywhere sunny in your landscape!
