Veronica 'Wizard of Ahhs' PP31044 CPBRAF (25) Bare Root Plants
MAGIC SHOW® Collection
Common Name: Spike Speedwell
This plant brings the "oohs" and "ahhs" with its early blooming performance, outstanding flower color, and impeccable habit. One of the earliest Veronica to bloom, this plant produces thick spikes of violet blue flowers that cover the top half of a low, wide habit.
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.
