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.
A towering inhabitant of Missouri’s open woods, prairies and moist meadows, this regal straight-backed perennial is the epitome of today’s prairie-style plantings, equally comfortable in formal or informal venues. Crowded with petite tubular whitish blue flowers, the slender, nectar-rich candelabra-shaped panicles reside atop dashing lance-shaped vibrant green leaves that congregate in groups of 3 to 7, forming spaced whorls along sturdy stems. Bright, moderately moist, well-drained sites sustain Culver’s Root’s no-fuss habit, while Echinops ‘Veitch’s Blue’ and Eryngium yuccifolium make worthy companions.
