Speedwell is an easy-to-grow herbaceous perennial that flowers brilliantly in partial sun in well-drained soil locations. Ensure Veronica gets regular moisture throughout the growing season to keep blooming despite the heat. Provide a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch for moisture retention and insulation. Deadhead as soon as the blooms fade to encourage new blooms to form. Once the foliage dies back after frost, you can prune the mound to remove excess debris. Veronica are heat and saline-resistant, and deer-tolerant plants!
Salt and heat-tolerant Seaside Veronica has earned its place in coastal gardens and porch planters anywhere in the sun garden! Hurry and order this fantastic new cultivar today for blue blooms year-after-year! Now at NatureHills.com!
