Trees are valuable and beautiful assets to the environment and to any landscape, and black walnut trees are no exception. They are lovely trees that provide delicious and nutritious nuts and one of the most valuable hardwoods. They are allelopathic, however, and many gardeners avoid them or get rid of them.

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.
