Veronicastrum virginicum ‘Adoration’
at Digging Dog

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.

Veronicastrum virginicum ‘Adoration’ full sun  partial shade

In addition to the stylish blooms, this sought-after Veronicastrum gives you good reason to adore it. When tall valiant stems stretch skyward, they strut striking purple shades easily spotted from a distance, which promise to turn more than a few heads. Round densely packed pink buds set the stage for ethereal-looking lilac flowers on candelabra-like spires, further enhancing the dashing whorls of deep green pointed leaves.

Blooms August – September.

Size: 4'–5' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
