Veronica longifolia 'Blue Shades'
The Longleaf speedwells are easy to grow, trouble free, flower in abundance, have tidy clumps of well behaved foliage, tolerate cold wet winters and cope with drought.
Not much else we can say except these are some of the truest blues to be found on any plant, they are in flower from midsummer to autumn and the tall spires make superb vertical accents in a border.
Drifts of these are spectacular and when cut the flower stems last well in arrangements.
Blue not your colour? We grow a pink variety too.
