Buy Veronica longifolia 'Charlotte' (PBR) speedwell: A new variegated cultivar

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


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

    Slender, upright spires of white, tubular flowers appear in summer above cream-edged, mid-green leaves. This elegant speedwell shows a good resistance to mildew and will add vertical interest throughout a sunny border on well-drained soil. If cut back after the flowers have faded, it may produce a second flush in late summer or early autumn.

  • Garden care: In more exposed positions, stake with brushwood or bamboo canes before the flowers appear. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

Needs water

This veronica really needs damp soil all the time. The moment the soil dries out it droops - although it'll recover with a good water. For me in East Anglia, where rain is scarce, I now do not use this plant unless there's an irrigation system in place.
