Plant Information

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.)

        I plant a lot of salvia and veronica in this z4a because they are hardy and beautiful, and it is wonderful to have a taller spiked-form rising above other, smaller forms, esp. against the golds like coreopsis Zagreb.

            great find

            from St. Louis, Missouri

            Comments about American Meadows Purpleicious Veronica:

            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.

              Q & A

              Plant With These:

              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:
