Veronica longifolia ‘Marietta’
at Digging Dog

Veronica

Speedwell

According to legend, Saint Veronica used her handkerchief to soothe Christ’s brow, and forever after, it bore markings that are supposedly replicated in these long blooming Speedwell flowers. Flourishing in sunny, well drained sites, our Veronica selections are undemanding, and deliver dazzling color to the summer border.

Recently awarded a bronze medal by the Boskoop Horticultural Society, this vibrant new introduction comes to our country courtesy of the acclaimed Dutch nursery, Rijnbeek. Slender toothed green leaves, which are less prone than most Veronica to mildew and leaf spot, compose a tidy basal bed beneath plentiful dark blue spires. The plump electric-hued inflorescences seem to glitter as fanciful looking, long light-colored stamens unfurl, setting ‘Marietta’ apart from its Veronica longifolia cousins.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
