Common Name: Spike Speedwell
The popular trend in the perennial market is offering smaller plants to fit into the increasingly common city garden. ‘Blue Skywalker’ solves the dilemma of limited horizontal space while still providing the much needed height in the garden. Lavender blue flower spikes cover the top half of an incredibly upright habit of dark green leaves. Although it’s taller than you’d expect from a Veronica, this plant still features a full, dense habit.
Veronica is highly valued for its ease of growth and long bloom time. The spiky flowers are an excellent contrast to the more common rounded flower shapes like Shasta Daisies, Coneflower, and Black Eyed Susans. Expect bees to be buzzing about this plant when in bloom.
Deer resistant. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
