They are reminiscent of a high quality painting and the stand out in the garden thanks to their beauty and vertical quality. The bottle brush like spikes proliferate during a long bloom period from mid to late summer. You'll find that pollinators flock to the flowers of veronica, which are wonderful additions to a cut flower arrangement. Veronica is an easy to grow perennial that can tolerate part shade and makes a wonderful mid-level flower for a border garden, patio container or raised bed. The green and purple shades pair well with warm oranges and yellows or cooler blues and greens.

Caring for Veronica 'Perfectly Picasso' - Spike Speedwell

Veronica can tolerate a wide range of well-drained soil types and adding organic matter to clay or infertile soil will improve growth and reduce maintenance. Even thought it can tolerate part-sun, it will flower better in full sun. Deadheading will promote additional blooms. Shear back the foliage if it becomes worn-looking after flowering.
