    Comments about Veronicastrum 'Adoration':

    A really good back of the border plant, lovely colour especially good with blues,purples and whites for a pastel border. Doesn't need staking if it's amongst other plants, but not good for very windy spots. Needs a sunny position or it will bend towards the light in too much shade.
