perfect for pollinators

Also known as Culvers Root, Veronicastrum virginicum is a very showy and stately plant with its eye-catching spikes of densely clustered pure white flowers with soft blush pink bases and pink anthers.  Flowering from mid-summer to early autumn this striking plant has an almost candelabra effect with its flowers that are nicely complemented by the dark green leaves that are arranged in whorls around the stems.

This attractive plant adds vertical interest to the garden and is a perfect choice for naturalistic plantings, cottage gardens or gardens for attracting butterflies and bees.  It is easy to grow and requires very little care.  Veronicastrum will perform at its best in full sun or part shade but does like medium to wet well-drained soils, although it will tolerate a bit of waterlogged soil from time to time.  If planted in too much shade the plants tend to flop a bit and would need some support.   Deadheading will prolong the flowering season.  After the plants have finished flowering, cut them back to the ground to encourage new foliage growth.

An excellent cut flower.  Whilst it is a long-lived perennial, it may take a few years to get established.  Plants can be easily split in spring.

Looks lovely planted with Aruncus dioicus  and lovely as a backdrop to our lovely Hydrangea Annabelle

Please note that on occasion Aramex may deem an area to be rural where other companies may not, this unfortunately is outside of our control as Aramex are the preferred courier for live plants, as other couriers will not transport them.
