Description

Veronica gentianoides is the most beautiful pale blue veronica which is a very long flowering garden plant and a superb cut flower. I've always loved it.

With thick, dark green leaves, this mat-forming plant is great for a border, rock garden or container.

Care Tips

Cut back faded flowers to encourage good growth the following year. Water regularly during dry spells. Add extra phosphorus to encourage root development. Divide large clumps in spring or autumn.
