(aka: Veronica 'Royal Candles') In our gardens, this 2001 introduction has impressed both us and our garden visitors. From Heather and Mike Philpott in the UK comes this amazing, heat-tolerant hybrid unlike any other veronica we've grown. The 3" tall x 30" wide, tight clumping, rock garden-sized plants are topped, starting in May, with hundreds of thin but sturdy 18" tall flower spikes (resembling those anorexic runway models). The spikes begin opening with blue-purple flowers at the base and move steadily upward like a lit fuse, ending their flowering cycle at the uppermost tip in mid-October...yes, that's five months of flowering!
