Veronicastrum sibiricum Red Arrows

Veronicastrum

Culver's Root

These elegant perennials impart a lofty vertical element to the late summer garden. Graced with distinctive narrow spires of densely arranged tiny flowers, Veronicastrum are native to meadows and woodlands, and are easy to grow in adequately moist soil.

True to its name, this distinctive undemanding Coen Jansen introduction asserts deep rosy red buds squeezed onto a central spike, surrounded by slightly smaller side stalks all opening at the same time and presenting a unique arrow shape. Cherished by bees and butterflies, the striking spires unfurl a multitude of tiny violet flowers, while whorled lanceolate leaves attire tall steadfast stems. A glamourous upright mainstay for any planting, 'Red Arrows' soars amongst Trifolium rubens, Phlomis 'Amazon' and Sedum 'Matrona' in a prairie-style landscape or a more formal setting.

Size: 4' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
