Veronica spicata subsp. incana ‘Pure Silver’


Veronica incana 'Pure Silver' has gorgeous silver foliage and spires of royal purple flowers offering twice the interest of other speedwells.

Veronica incana 'Pure Silver' is an intriguing addition for the perennial border offering the lovely spires of royal purple flowers that we love from the speedwells but with gorgeous silver foliage that provides interest long before the summer flowering and then, during flowering, provides a striking foil to the dark, luscious flowers. Plant in hot, dry spots with well-drained or gravely soils. Requires excellent winter drainage.
