First Lady looks gorgeous mixed with moody blue First Glory, or the luscious pink First Kiss!
Perennial Veronica are easy-to-grow and flower best in full sun in well-drained soil locations. Veronica has the most vigor when it gets plenty of water during the growing season to stay perfectly happy in the heat. Top off with 3-4 inches of arborist mulch for moisture retention and insulation. Deadhead the blooms as soon as they fade to encourage new blooms to form. In late autumn, once the foliage dies back after frost, you can prune the mound to remove excess debris.
The First Lady Veronica brings bright white color & vertical form to the landscape - plus loads of pollinators too! Reserve your hardy perennial flowering plants today at NatureHills.com!
