    Speedwell (Veronica) 'Giles van Hees' is a compact Speedwell cultivar that blooms profusely from early to late summer. Its rosy pink blossom spikes can be deadheaded to encourage the growth of additional blooming spikes. 'Giles van Hees' does well in a sunny spot, but its stalks may scorch in all-day sun. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils, as this may lead to root rot.
