Why We Love It

Veronica (aka speedwell) has highrise flower towers which will add structure and drama to your outdoor space, and prove a big hit with neighbouring pollinators.

‘Ulster Blue Dwarf’s tiny, electric-blue blooms cluster together to form soft, distinctive spires above dark green, toothy foliage.

Easy to care for, this compact herbaceous perennial enjoys a long flowering season, before dying back to the ground in autumn and growing skywards again each spring.

Grow it in drifts or dot it through a border, rockery or container garden.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May, September, October, November.
