Everyone Loves Veronicas. In perennial borders, they have always added great vertical interest with elegant spires of color. They bloom for a long time, and are a snap to grow. In addition, many of the species are native American wildflowers, making the hybrids at home in all our gardens. (Many call them by their other common name, Speedwell.)

      Since I forgot to mark where I planted these it was a very nice surprise when it popped up with beautiful flowers. It is still in bloom and today is 8-29. A very nice plant.

                  Comments about American Meadows Veronica Purpleicious:

                  This is a great find. Grows easily with little care after planting. It has grown to full height and width this season...I think. It continues to produce flowers and the bees love it. The color is beautiful color. It arrived with buds and is still growing new flowers after several months. It is planted in a bed with lilies and hides the lily stems very well and tolerates the moisture the lilies need without difficulty.

                          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                          Find Your Planting Zone:

                          Enter your Zip Code to find your USDA Planting Zone
