Veronica (Speedwell)
Genus of about 250 species of perennials and annuals.  Found naturally in open woodlands,
sunny meadows, rocky sites, and swampy bottoms.  The leaves are either lanced shaped,
toothed, rounded, or oblong, and are produced in opposite pairs up and down the main stalk.  
The flowers are normally outward facing and are up to 1/2" across, in colors of purple, pink,
blue, or white.  These plants are commonly native to Europe and are now cultivated
world-wide for their exquisite bloom and growth habit.  Our Veronica plants are top performing
perennials that offer seasons of interest in leaf and flower displays.
Veronica Growing Tips
  • Veronica plants should be planted in full sun for best performance.
  • Plant in a well-drained soil that has been enriched with organic matter or already has an
    adequate amount of organic matter.
  • Add compost to the planting hole to feed a growing plant and to encourage an even soil
  • Before planting make sure the pH of your soil is within a 5.5-7.5 for optimum growth
    and flowering.
  • If planting in containers make sure to add sand to the planting medium to aid in drainage.
