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.
Veronicastrum virginicum ‘Cupid’ (P-2254)
PREORDER FOR APRIL 2023
Some say the chunky erect spikes resemble Cupid’s love-struck arrows; we say you’ll be smitten with the flamboyant months-long display. Subtended by smaller lateral mahogany-infused stems plus deep reddish violet buds, the chock-full amethyst-colored blooms develop halo-like white stamens atop an enduring bushy habit of staunch stalks wrapped in handsome whorled lanceolate green foliage. This easy-care statuesque perennial provides striking vertical accents, nourishes the pollinators and promises exceptional cut flowers, fresh or dried, while enjoying cool adequately-moist abodes.
Size: 4' 0" high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
