Speedwell Veronica Purple

Proofreaders: This page is simply a mockup I copied and pasted from another website, so it won’t be going live and you don’t have to proofread the content for errors. The Plant Database will be a time-consuming project that won’t be ready for a while, but you can give feedback on the idea and how you think it should be formatted, linked, etc. Tammy also suggested linking directly to the Square app inventory, so I am going to look into that.

Speedwell is the perfect choice for gardeners with limited time – carefree and low maintenance. Thick rosy-purple flower wands conjure a spell-binding balance of flowers and foliage. The deep green foliage is clean and attractive all season.

Plant Veronica Purple Illusion in any well-drained spot in your sunny border. Now sit back and watch as it yields countless flower spikes beginning in mid-summer. Flower wands open from the base to the tips for long-blooming flower power. Dark green, bushy mounds of sturdy foliage is not a favorite of deer; however, hummingbirds and butterflies can’t seem to stay away.
