Buy Veronica spicata 'Rotfuchs' speedwell (syn. Red Fox ): Deep pink flower spires

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
  • Flower colour: deep pink
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Branching leafy stems form neat, bushy mounds, which are topped with stout spikes bearing deep, rose-pink flowers. A very decorative cultivar, particularly when planted in large clumps towards the front of a herbaceous border.

  • 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
