Planting veronica in the garden is a great way to enjoy long-lasting blooms throughout the summer season. These easy-care plants don’t require much upkeep once established, making them ideal for the busy gardener. Their blossoms provide rich purple shades of long-lasting color. Veronica plants are deer-resistant, drought-tolerant and attract hummingbirds and butterflies to the garden.
Plant veronica in a sunny location with well-draining soil. In the spring and summer, veronica needs frequent watering. The soil should remain moist and may require more water as the plant starts to grow. Hardiness zones range from 3-8.
