Thought of by many as the strongest white selection of Veronica, this very compact, mounding plant has deep green foliage and bone white flower spikes from June to August. A great white bloom for the hottest portion of the year.

Care Instruction:
Soil and Moisture: Speedwells prefer well amended, organic rich soils. Watering regularly thorughout the growing season will produce the best results, however, mature plants can dry out time to time without harm.
Fertilizing: Feed once during the early spring with a 10-10-10 granular fertilizer as growth emerges.
Trimming: Once frost has caused the leaves to yellow and die, cut off at the ground and remove debris.
Division: Divide every 3 to 4 years for continued plant health. Division can be done in early spring as new growth is emerging.
