Veronica First Glory is a fabulous, deep-blue spiked flower that adds intriguing texture and color to the early summer garden. Tight, bright-green growing tips contrast beautifully against the developing ultramarine flowers - a real head-turner! First Glory has a compact growth habit, becoming only 16-20" tall, making it perfect for a border or small space garden. PPAF (Veronica)

Plant Information

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.)

    Comments about American Meadows Veronica First Glory:

    The color was intense, the shape tightly upright on the flower and good tight foliage shape. Survived extremely late planting (Nov. with snow) and came back gangbusters this year. Highly recommend!

    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).
