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.
Packed green buds plus petite soft pink tubular blooms populate the lanky slim, finger-like terminal racemes that are characterized by a main central spike and surrounding shorter ones. A friend to pollinators, floral artists and gardeners alike, this recent Piet Oudolf selection peacocks straight swarthy stems clothed in whorls of winsome lance-shaped pointed green leaves. ‘Challenger’s noble presence and dreamy pastel-colored blooms can be intermingled with Boltonia ‘Pink Beauty’ and Pennisetum ‘Karley Rose’.
Size: 4' 0" high x 18" wide.
