Speedwell 'Giles Van Hees' - 8 In.


Veronica spicata 'Giles Van Hees'

Giles Van Hees' is a dwarf variety of Speedwell and its dense, compact form, along with its oversized display of reddish-pink, long-lived flowers will make this plant a staple in any perennial bed. Plant it in the front or middle of the border to best enjoy its bloom beginning in early June, or use it in a container garden where its dense form and brilliant bloom will flourish. Once the flowers are past, shear off the spent blooms to encourage a later summer reblooming that will inject life into your late summer garden. 'Giles Van Hees' loves full sun and moist, well-drained soil for the optimum flower performance and it is extremely forgiving, requiring very little care to thrive. Butterflies and hummingbirds love its sweet flowers, while deer avoid the flowers and its deep green serrated leaves.
