Description :

A superb vertical to add to a mixed border

Veronica longifolia (long-leaved Veronica) is native to the northern hemisphere, from Northern Europe to Siberia, China and Korea. It prefers damp conditions (wet meadows or waterside).

This upright herbaceous perennial forms generous clumps and in early summer produces a multitude of tubular flowers borne on long spikes.

Not to be missed, it's a great addition to a mixed border to contrast with perennial Achillea, Echinacea, Helenium and geraniums (flat / spike flower contrasts) or behind varieties with a rounded habit (Phlox paniculata, Artemisia). For the best effect, we recommend planting in groups of three, five or seven.

Veronica longifolia 'Schneeriesin' has a long flowering season, producing long ivory-white flower spikes from early summer on. Height of the inflorescences: 80 cm. Spread: 50 cm

Especially for a white garden. We suggest planting Veronica longifolia 'Schneeriesin' with other white flowering perennials, such as: Achillea ptarmica 'Perry's White', Astrantia 'Snow Star', Campanula 'Wedding Bells', Leucanthemum x Superbum 'Wirral Supreme'. Wow!!

Easy to grow in good, not too dry, garden soil in the sun or slight shade. It can cope with damp, heavy soils if you add drainage elements when planting.

Maintenance: prune the dried inflorescences to encourage a second flowering in August-September. Mulch with leaf mould at the beginning of spring. Divide the clumps every three years in the autumn.
