Veronica 'Ever After' PP35035 CPBRAF (25) Bare Root Plants
MAGIC SHOW® Collection
Common Name: Spike Speedwell
Similar to 'White Wands' but with a lavender blue flower, 'Ever After' is among the longest blooming Veronica now available. 'Ever After' has flower spikes that reach nearly a foot in length, with each spike showing color for many weeks. An excellent season extender! In peak, flowers cover the top two thirds of the plant. The flowers are self-cleaning, resulting in a fresher looking plant in the landscape. Vernalization required for best performance.
Veronica is highly valued for its ease of growth and long bloom time. The spiky flowers are an excellent contrast to the more common rounded flower shapes like Shasta Daisies, Coneflower, and Black Eyed Susans. Expect bees to be buzzing about this plant when in bloom.
This perennial is tolerant of a wide range of well-drained soil types. Amending soils, especially very heavy and light types, with generous amounts of organic matter will result in improved performance. Although tolerant of partial shade, it will flower better in full sun. Deadheading will promote additional blooms. Shear back the foliage if it becomes worn-looking after flowering.
