Seasonal Blooms: Veronica

July 10, 2013


Fresh Veronica flowers are unique fillers that feature long thin blooms with numerous florets, adding both volume and color. Easy and undemanding, veronicas catch the eye in sunny gardens. Some have mats with loose clusters of saucer-shaped flowers, while others group their star or tubular flowers into erect tight spikes. A few veronicas bring elusive blue to the garden, but more often the flowers are purplish or violet blue, rosy pink, or white.

These little beauties add beautiful accents to any bouquet. All on their own or mixed into an arrangement.  When they are in off season, a great substitute would be lysmachia.
