  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Upright, leafy stems are topped with candelabra-like racemes of lilac-blue flowers from midsummer. Tall and elegant plants, which are valuable for adding colour and interest towards the back of the border, their silhouette will remain interesting well into winter.

  • Garden care: Divide plants in spring. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

    Comments about Veronicastrum virginicum 'Fascination':

    This plant didn't perform nearly as well as I'd hoped, but this may well be to do with its position in the border - it probably needs more sun than I can give it. I'm hoping that it will do better in its second season - if not I may move it to a sunnier spot.

      The Chelsea Chop (and other methods of extending the flowering season)

      Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new
