Butterfly Lovers' Veronica Collection

Description

Attract pollinators all summer long with this collection of easy-care perennials. This collection includes one each of White Wands, Perfectly Picasso and Blue Skywalker veronicas at a savings of 44% versus buying them individually. All three produce flower spikes that wave above clumps of straplike foliage, creating a display of white, pink or blue hues. Their space-saving form—growing up rather than out—makes them ideal for smaller gardens, urban plots or containers. And while butterflies, bees and hummingbirds love them, deer tend to avoid the plants. They're easy to maintain; no pruning or deadheading is necessary. They all bloom for weeks in the summertime. 3" pots. Veronica 'White Wands,' 'Blue Skywalker,' 'Perfectly Picasso

  • Unique CharactersticsPerfectly Picasso: If you want stop-in-your-tracks beauty, look no further than 'Perfectly Picasso'. Paintbrush-like spikes produce white buds that open to medium pink flowers. The contrast between the buds and the flowers give this plant a unique bicolor look. Attractive flowers cover the top 1/2 of the plant, showing off its healthy medium green leaves on a beautifully rounded habit. This medium-height Veronica would be perfect for the middle of the border. Pair this bicolor beauty with 'Royal Rembrandt'. White Wands: MAGIC SHOW® Spike Speedwell have long, narrow flower spikes that look like colorful wands-and 'White Wands' is the perfect neutral white color if you'd like to combine with brightly colored annuals, like SUPERTUNIA®. 'White Wands' is the perfect height to plant behind your low-growing perennials, but if front of your shrubs, and will bloom from midsummer into late summer. Honeybees, hummingbirds, and butterflies delight in their sweet nectar. The dark green, glossy linear leaves display better disease resistance than older Veronica. Blue Skywalker: The popular trend in the perennial market is offering smaller plants to fit into the increasingly common city garden. 'Blue Skywalker' solves the dilemma of limited horizontal space while still providing the much needed height in the garden. Lavender blue flower spikes cover the top half of an incredibly upright habit of dark green leaves. Although it's taller than you'd expect from a Veronica, this plant still features a full, dense habit.
