Description
Veronica Purpleicious’ deep-purple, fragrant spikes are offset by deep green foliage. Simply stunning both planted in containers or in the garden bed. The sweet fragrance will attract winged friends to the garden.

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 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.
