Dwarf Spike Speedwell (Veronica spicata ‘Royal Candles’) creates a clump of royal blue spikes atop green foliage.
The blooms appear in June, last for several weeks and will re-bloom if sheared by half.
The spikes add a new dimension to the border, and although veronica blooms after the tulips are finished, it continues the feel of spring.
