Keeping up with this year’s trends, we are proud to introduce a brand new Veronica that perfectly matches the Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.

This posh new perennial produces a plethora of paintbrush-like, rosy purple flowers on heavily branched scapes from midsummer into late summer. Honeybees, hummingbirds, and butterflies delight in their sweet nectar. Each main flower spike is surrounded by up to a dozen secondary flower spikes, resulting in a prolonged season of bloom.

Its bright green, upright clumping foliage may take on some red tones in fall.
