Veronica, commonly known as Speedwell or bird’s-eye, is recommended as a reliable garden plant, prized by gardeners, nice-looking and attracting attention for their elegancy. These long-blooming, easy care perennials show their spiky flowers throughout Spring and Summer and even early Autumn. Their popularity increased during recent years, due to the introduction of many hybrid cultivars with new colours and improved plant forms. Whether planted at the front, middle or back of the border, their slender wands enliven the garden with colour. Flowers at the base of the inflorescence bloom first, with subsequent buds opening steadily in an upward fashion.
Though there are about 250 different species of Veronica known, the so-called ‘spiked speedwell’, Veronica spicata is one of the most attractive species which is familiar to gardeners. Veronica spicata and their hybrids are easily to grow, clump forming perennials for the sunny border. Most are relatively compact and have upright well-branched flower spikes and can be long-lived, provided that garden soils drain freely, which is especially important during winter months. Veronica spicata itself requires little maintenance and is absolutely hardy. A midsummer shearing after the first bloom promotes healthy new, basal foliage and encourages late summer flowering. Pla nts grown in less light will not bloom as profusely and may become lax or open in habit.
Brand new is the Veronica spicata hybride Younique®Baby Series, available in four colours. Veronica spicata hybrid Younique®Baby Blue; Veronica spicata hybrid Younique® Baby Pink; Veronica spicata hybrid Younique® Baby Red and Veronica spicata hybrid Younique® Baby White.
These outstanding, very floriferous varieties are the showiest hybrids of this genus.

It attracts butterflies as well. When deadheading(removing) the faded flower spikes, new flowers occur constantly.
