More Information About Veronicastrum

Veronicastrum is a genus of 20 species of moisture loving perennials that produce tall candle-like flower spikes during the summer that attract butterflies and bees to the garden. As the name suggests, Veronicastrum is closely related to Veronica (Speedwell). The tall, upright stems and flower spikes make a lasting impression in a cottage garden or in the back of a perennial border. Veronicastrum prefers full sun and may get leggy and flop over in too much shade, but other than that it is a no-fuss, low maintenance plant. If your False Veronica gets too tall, try cutting it back and let it re-flush. If you deadhead your Veronicastrum stems, you can extend the flower show too.
