The Red Fox Veronica (Veronica spicata 'Red Fox'), also known as Speedwell, is an easy-to-grow perennial that adds beauty and color to any sun garden! This upright perennial produces wonderful, deep-pink flowers that bloom from June to September. With its dark, glossy-green foliage, these plants grow 15 inches in height and only a foot or more wide at maturity, creating lovely mounded greenery that looks great all growing season while maintaining a small footprint.

Highly valued for their extended bloom time and ease of care, Veronica Speedwell plants light up the garden with vertical blooms and all the pollinators and hummingbirds they attract! Add to a Hummingbird garden with some feeders and a bird bath to enjoy the blur of flying jewels as they visit your garden gems! Be sure to snip a few for your indoor bouquets and enjoy the vivid pink hue in the vase too!

Very cold-hardy, Veronica is highly adaptable throughout USDA growing zones 3 through 9 and unlike other flowering Speedwell, can bloom beautifully in partial shade! The Red Fox's rosy pink blooms shine regardless of the lack of sun!

Planting and Application:

The brilliant vertical texture lights up the garden and adds motion and texture to garden beds in the dappled sun! Veronica is showy all summer into early fall much to the delight of your local butterflies! Classic border garden, cottage garden, Rock Garden, and perfect additions to a cut flower garden! Those eye-catching pink blooms are striking against evergreen hedges and burgundy foliage. Use Veronica as a front or back-of-the-border pop of color that catches the eye!

Add vertical interest among other plants in porch and patio container gardens! Veronica works well in mixed planters as fillers, in borders as short edging, or to add bright color to any large or small-scale landscape. Fantastic vertical blooms for bouquets and vase arrangements, Red Fox allows you to enjoy the radiant blooms indoors as well as outside!

#ProPlantTips For Care

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.

  • Blooms Best in Full Sun
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Regular Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead For Rebloom & Prune Mounds Late Autumn
  • Seldom Damaged By Deer or Rabbits
  • Easy to Grow
