New Two-Toned Veronica

by A. Cort Sinnes

Veronica is a mainstay of many perennial flower gardens. It adds dramatic color and form when it blooms in midsummer. While most varieties display spikes of blue, red, pink, or white flowers, a new variety features two-toned blossoms.

?Fairytale? veronica has silvery green foliage on a compact, slow-spreading 16-inch-tall plant. The 7-inch, two-toned flower spikes feature light pink petals with rosy pink stamens. If the first flower stalks are cut back immediately after blooming, ?Fairytale? will flower again in late summer. ?Fairytale? grows best on well-drained soil in full sun. It?s hardy in USDA zones 4 to 8.
