‘Lavender Lightsaber’ joins popular companion ‘Blue Skywalker’ except with soft lavender flowers covering the top half of a columnar, upright habit. Bucking the trend of smaller and more compact plants, ‘Lavender Lightsaber’ fills a need of adding height to the middle of the border. Try this perennial in narrow spaces needing height, such as small city gardens or narrow borders.
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 hummingbirds and bees.
