They do, however, have sweetly fragrant flowers that you and your butterflies and Hummingbirds will delight in seeing Veronica form their vertical towers of color throughout the sun garden!

Caring For Veronica Plants

Veronica can be herbaceous annuals, perennials or small shrubs, but the varieties Nature Hills ships are perennial throughout USDA plant hardiness zones 4 to 9.

Plant these Perennials in the spring or fall and provide well-drained soil with full sun to partial shade. This sturdy plant can take clay or heavy, wet soils as long the soil is in a well-drained area. All plants appreciate a 3-4 inch deep layer of arborist mulch to protect them from the summer heat, and winter chill, and to keep moisture levels consistent all year round.

Tall varieties may have to be staked. If not pruned yearly, some varieties tend to get leggy. The best time to prune and shape them is in the spring, and regular deadheading during the blooming season can extend the flowering period.
