These elegant perennials impart a lofty vertical element to the late summer garden. Adorned with distinctive narrow spires of densely-arranged tiny flowers, Veronicastrum are native to meadows and woodlands, and are simple to grow in adequately-moist soil.
Come late summer, when afternoon shadows lengthen across the garden, we watch for the setting sun to illuminate this stately specimen, its 15 in. long rosy-lilac racemes culminate in narrow, often pendulous, vivid green-budded tips. Strong stems bearing whorled, darkly verdant linear foliage seldom need staking. Pair with arching Stipa gigantea in the border for a natural look.
Size: 5' 0" – 5-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
