Description :

Red spike speedwell

Veronica spicata is often found in the mountains of Europe and Asia and is an herbaceous perennial from the huge plantain family which includes the Plantago, Digitalis, Penstemon and Veronicastrum genera. A xerothermophilous plant, it likes dry and sunny rockeries (rocky slopes and outcrops, dry meadows) and well-draining soil that can be acid to alkaline.

In the garden we like its summer flowering of upright spikes in tones of white, blue, pink or purple to decorate the edge of a border, a rockery, in a trough or on a wall. Melliferous (honey-yielding) plant.

The Veronica spicata 'Rotfuchs' cultivar forms a compact clump and produces summer flowers in beautiful spikes ranging from dark pink to red. Height including the floral stems: 30 cm to 50 cm.

Grow in the sun or slight shade, in a rock garden, in ordinary, light and well-drained soil. Does not like too much damp in winter (or automatic watering!). Hardy.

Maintenance: prune the dried inflorescences to promote new flowering.
