Royal Candles is well-named. The Veronicas create some of the best blues in the flower kingdom, and this one is royal.
I love Veronicas. In my 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.)
