This upright herbaceous perennial forms generous clumps and in early summer produces a multitude of tubular flowers borne on long spikes.
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).
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.
The tall pink spikes of Veronica longifolia'Pink Damask' and its long summer flowering make it a great decorative element in a perennial bed to contrast with rounded habit varieties (Lavandula, Santolina, etc.) or with silver foliage plants (Stachys, Artemisia), or those with round flowers (Echinacea, Scabiosa).
