VERONICA spicata 'Sightseeing Mix'( SIGHTSEEING SERIES)
Sightseeing Mix Speedwell, Spike Speedwell
The long tapered flower clusters of the Sightseeing Series are great for cutting and easily grown from seed. These herbaceous perennials are selections of spike speedwell, a clump-forming plant from Europe and western Asia. In summer they bear candle-like clusters of many small purple, violet-blue, rose, pink, or white flowers on thigh-high stems. The popular 'Sightseeeing Mix' contains all the colors this series offers. The flowers are magnets for bees and butterflies. Bloom will often be prolonged if spent racemes are removed. The gray green, lance-shaped foliage turns golden yellow to yellow green in fall.
Flowering the first year from seed, this sun-loving perennial grows best in fertile to average soil with good drainage and will even weather short dry spells. Plants in the Sightseeing Series are great for mixed borders, cottage gardens, and wildflower displays.
