Veronica 'Ulster Dwarf Blue' Overview

Veronica spicata 'Ulster Dwarf Blue' has a compact habit, producing a spreading mat and toothed, lance-shaped, hairy leaves. In summer, small, star-shaped, bright blue flowers appear on the many spikes that emerge from the foliage. Each flower has a tiny green tip, the effect of which turns this Veronica into a showstopper. Also known as Speedwell 'Ulster Dwarf Blue', it likes moist, well-drained soil and a position in full sun, but it will tolerate partial shade. Deadheading after flowering encourages more blooms. Veronica 'Ulster Dwarf Blue' is a versatile and low maintenance addition to your garden - it is suitable for cottage and urban courtyard borders alike and works well as groundcover or as a pot or container specimen. It is generally pest-free.
