 Veronica spicata Ronica Fuchsia - 

A compact perennial forming a mat of grey-green, narrowly-oval, toothed leaves and tall spikes of fuchsia pink flowers.

Height and Spread:

Height 30-45 cm ; Spread 30-45 cm

    Description:

    • Flowers: Veronica spicata produces spikes of small, tubular flowers. These flowers are often densely packed along the spikes, creating a showy appearance.

    • Foliage: The leaves are usually lance-shaped and can be green or have a slightly grayish tint.

    • Habit: Veronica spicata generally has an upright, clump-forming habit.

    Care:

    1. Growing Conditions:

    • Sunlight: Prefers full sun to partial shade. Veronica spicata generally performs well in a sunny location.

    • Soil: Well-draining soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH is ideal. Veronicas are adaptable to various soil types but prefer moderately fertile, well-drained soil.

    2. Watering:

    • Provide regular watering, especially during dry periods. While veronicas can tolerate some drought, they generally prefer consistently moist soil.

    3. Pruning:

    • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. You can also cut back the entire plant after the first flush of flowers to encourage a more compact habit.

    4. Fertilizing:

    • Apply a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer in spring to provide nutrients for healthy growth.

    5. Mulching:

    • Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

    6. Winter Care:

    • In colder climates, a layer of mulch applied in late autumn can help protect the plant's roots during winter.

    7. Landscape Use:

    • Veronica spicata is suitable for borders, rock gardens, and containers. It adds colour and vertical interest to the garden.
