Veronica "Spreadwell"

Native to Northern Hemisphere

Veronica, which is more commonly known as a ”speedwell” because it was often found along roadsides and was said that the masses of these pretty flowers were there to “speed you well”. In Ireland, a bit of the plant was pinned on the clothing to keep travelers from accidents. The origin of the name veronica dates back to the time when Jesus Christ was alive and there is a good bit of storytelling behind that.

The veronica flower bears roughly 500 species to its name. The majority of these species are native to the milder areas of the Northern Hemisphere; however, some can be seen sprouting in the summer region as well. The flower can grow as tall as thirty inches with flowers growing from the thick two to three inch stem. The plants themselves have simple, two-inch leaves protruding from the stem. The veronica forms impressive flower spikes that come in white, pink, purple and blue shades. The flower spikes are composed of dozens of densely arranged, small florets that open progressively from the base upwards.

Growing Recommendations - Veronica

Veronicas will succeed in any good, well-drained garden soil in full sun or partial shade. The veronica should be planted in the start of spring or the start of autumn and the seeds should be sowed between eighteen and twenty-four centimeters apart. If planting from a container, dig a hole twice the size of the containers diameter and keep the plants nine to twelve inches apart. When placing the plant in the hole, ensure that the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Make sure you water thoroughly. Water well weekly until the soil is completely moist in summers with no rainfall. It is also important to deadhead old flowers prolong to blooming. When the blooms and foliage are killed by the first frost, cut the plant back until it is only two or three inches off the ground. This will protect it during the winter and encourage growth in the spring.
