In this way, what does the plant Veronica look like?
Veronica, also called Speedwell, is a carefree and easy-to-grow perennial with long spikes of small petals in purple, blue, pink, or white. Here's how to grow veronica in your garden! This attractive plant grows in clusters from 1 to 3 feet tall, and blooms from spring to autumn.
Beside above, should Veronica be deadheaded? Deadheading Salvia will promote a long bloom period. Veronica (speedwell) should have the spent flower spike cut back to side branches. Once they are finished flowering, cut the stems down to the ground, which may produce a small rebloom later.
Likewise, people ask, is Veronica a herb?
Veronica is the largest genus in the flowering plant family Plantaginaceae, with about 500 species; it was formerly classified in the family Scrophulariaceae. Common names include speedwell, bird's eye, and gypsyweed.
Do Veronica plants spread?
The tall varieties of Veronica grow in clumps so are well-behaved in the flower garden, while ground covers will spread and fill in an area. Most varieties of Veronica are hardy throughout our region.
