Veronica

VERONICA A wonderful genus with a little something for everyone; at one end of the spectrum are the tall border species. Perennials that provide months of color are loved by butterflies and have such an ease of culture that little short of roundup will do them in. At the other end of the spectrum, there are some of the choicest of alpine plants, perfect for troughs, the alpine house, or that special place in the rock garden. In between are many great plants for general rock garden use or for edging borders and what have you. We think we have assembled a wonderful collection that like fine wine needs to be sampled to fully appreciate it.

Veronica gentianoides

Veronica gentianoides

One of the very best upright veronicas. The foliage, which indeed has a gentian-like look to it, forms a neat basal rosette, flowers are on spikes a couple feet tall, in shades of delightful, pale blue, over a very long period over the course of the summer, particularly if you deadhead. Vastly superior to the more common V. spicata, not sure why it isn't more widely grown. Zone 5
