  • My first year growing this Veronica. I live in zone 6B and this summer was a very wet and hot one. They did very well. Great color! I did notice some dieback from too much rain, got a little "mushy" in the middle by August. I only have 8 plants so I cleaned them up and they rebounded nicely. Also they grew to about full size in one season which was very nice.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
