Description:

A plant featured on the cover of our 2010 magazines... and one of our real favourites.

Veronicastrum virginicum 'Fascination' is native to the northern United States and has a sleek architectural habit, reaching 1.5 m - 1.8 m in height and summer flowering of long lilac-pink spikes which can grow to 25 cm in length.

A great focus plant we grow in good, fertile, moist garden soil, which can be heavy clay and in the sun (not too hot) or in light shade.

- in the limelight to display its talents,

- or in mass at the back of a mixed border of perennials and grasses: Helianthus, Miscanthus, Panicum, Rudbeckia, Verbena bonariensis, Echinacea, etc.

In fact, with all the long stemmed summer varieties!

It is also a good cut flower and a nectar-yielding favourite of the butterflies!
