Veronica Magic Show® 'Pink Potion' Description
Magic Show® Pink Potion. You might think it's magic. Closely spaced pink spikes brings a powerhouse performance.
Veronica or speedwell brings a vertical accent to your garden or a splash of great color to containers. This deer resistant veronica is a mound forming perennial with broad lance-shaped green leaves that stay handsome throughout the season. Plants produce slender pink spikes that are carried on very densely packed spikes resulting in an incredible almost magic show lasting from summer-fall. The tapering and plump long lasting spikes of Pink Potion is truly an improvement over older varieties of Veronica which are not as colorful or as dense in habit.
Blooms begin to open from the bottom of the spikes upward in early June and bloom well into late summer or fall if spent blooms are removed. Growing only 14" tall and spreading 18" wide, this long blooming perennial attracts bees & butterflies to the garden and thrives in sun to part shade. Delightful and long lasting as a cut flower.
Spiked Veronica pair well with daisy-type plants or broad foliage plants and is well-suited near the front of the border.
