Veronicastrum

Culver's Root

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.

Studded with lavender blue blooms, the lengthy flower spikes make an elegant presentation. Arranged in groups, they stand proudly on upright, sturdy stems, which sport spaced whorls of neat, broadly lanceolate leaves. This noble Asian native offers an admirable contrast to mounding forms, such as Amsonia hubrichtii.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 5' 0" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
