Buy Veronica spicata 'Glory' (PBR) speedwell (syn Royal Candles): Stunning blue veronica

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


    Dense, slender spires of star-shaped, deep blue-purple flowers from June to August above hairy, toothed green leaves. This marvellous speedwell is guaranteed to create an impact at the front of a mixed or herbaceous border. To thrive it requires a well-drained soil as plants that become water logged over winter are unlikely to survive.

  • Garden care: Remove faded flower-stems in autumn. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

Planted in a heavier soil, it did really well. Lovely flowers, the image is accurate, flowered for quite a while. Would definitely buy again.

Well packaged and healthy plants, put into borders when they arrived. They have survived the very hot weather with a bit of TLC and I will be buying more of these for borders.

Looking forward to it getting bigger this year as rather small and took a long time to come to anything - eventually had a few flowers

Unlike lost of the other plants I bought from Crocus these were not so healthy when they arrived and one died off almost as soon as I planted it. The others thrived though and produced a good flower display during the summer

How to use those dreamy flower spires

There's one garden essential that brings a planting scheme to life and it's upright flower spikes that soar heavenwards. They add drama and perspective to all your other planting and, as they open from the bottom upwards, each spire offers a glorious co
