Description

Veronica longifolia, ‘Blue Shades’ forms a bushy, upright plant of green leaves . The vigorous vertical stems hold tall, slender blue spires which are packed with masses of densely grouped, small buds, the flowers open, one after the other, from the base to form a long-lasting spire.
Veronica longifolia prefers a position in sun or part shade in moist well-drained soil, however it will tolerate drier soils, so long as it is mulched. It flowers in midsummer and lasts for several months into autumn. It adds a gentle columnar, architectural height to the border and is an excellent contrast to more traditional flower shapes when grown at the front of the border. It is eye-catching when planted in drifts.
It is attractive to bees, and butterflies and makes a good cut flower.
