About Veronicastrum

Veronicastrum are herbaceous perennials much like a larger Veronica. Tall leafy stems hold racemes of white, purple, blue or pink flowers. The flowering period for this plant is from summer into autumn. Veronicastrum originates from North America, where the most common species, Veronicastrum virginicum grows natively. They are best suited to beds or at the back of a sunny to partially shaded border. You should expect to see Veronicastrum grow to an approximate height of 1-2.5m (3-8ft), depending on the variety and an approximate spread of 0.5-1m (2-3ft).

How to plant Veronicastrum

Veronicastrum are best planted in a fertile and moist but well-drained soil of loam, clay, sand or chalk within an acid, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Veronicastrum will thrive best in either a sheltered or exposed site in a position of sun or partial shade. If planted in full shade, Veronicastrum will tend to flop over and become leggy.

How to care for Veronicastrum

As Abutilon are vigorous growers, prune back long stems as this will retain a compact and bushy shape. Once established, feed fortnightly with a balanced water soluble fertiliser as this will promote an abundance of flowering. Abutilon will require regular watering during active growth although will not tolerate waterlogging. Water sparingly during the winter.
