VERONICA(Speedwell) Zone 4
Popular for a border or informal garden, Veronica comes in a wide range of flower colours and shapes. Often on spikes, sometimes in clusters, the flowers have the characteristic two stamens that show on the face. A showy plant in borders and beds, low-growing varieties look great in rockeries

Attractive flowers cover the top ½ of the plant, showing off its healthy medium green leaves on a beautifully rounded habit. This medium-height Veronica would be perfect for the middle of the border. Pair this bicolor beauty with ‘Royal Rembrandt’. Pink Green June-August 22-26” high 22” spread
Royal Rembrandt This variety equally showcases attractive paintbrush-like flowers and healthy foliage. Violet purple flowers cover the top half of the plant, showcasing its dark green foliage.
