perfect for pollinators

This little plant is a fantastic addition to a cottage garden or in the rock garden thanks to its mat-forming tendencies.  Veronica gentianoides  also known as Gentian Speedwell forms a dense mat of thick, dark glossy green foliage that has tall spires of pale sky blue flowers  adorned with darker veining up to approximately 25cm from early summer. This little plant looks wonderful growing amongst other perennials in the front of the border and it is a magnet for bees.  Veronica gentianoides likes a moist but well drained position in either full sun or partial shade.   This plat looks great planted with Alchemilla mollis with the acid green flowers that show of the blue of the Veronica.  Great as a groundcover.  Remove spent flowers to encourage repeat flowering in the following year as well as encouraging a compact habit.  Easily divided in autumn or spring. 

We have a few other varieties of Veronica so simply put Veronica in the search box to see our other lovely varieties in blues and whites.

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. Where this occurs we will need to get in touch to get you to deposit the additional rural fee
