Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline'  

Enjoy colour and fragrance.

Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline' is an extremely eye-catching plant! When it flowers, it produces beautiful catkins of pinkish white flowers that open up to reveal bluish purple stamens, which in turn change to pink at the end of the flowering period. Veronicas are especially beautiful as cut flowers. These Veronicas are also winter-hardy, so you can enjoy these fantastic flowers year after year. Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline' is perfect for planting in borders, though naturally it also looks great in a pot on your terrace or balcony!

Make sure the Speedwell root ball is soaked well prior to planting. Place in a bucket of lukewarm water beforehand if necessary. Dig a large hole and loosen the soil with a digging fork. The plant spacing should be 30 cm. Place in the hole at the correct depth, which means that the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Refill the hole with soil, press down firmly and water immediately after planting. Speedwell thrives in well-drained, fertile soil and can be planted in full sun or partial shade.

Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline' in borders

The exuberantly flowering Veronica (Speedwell) is a very popular border perennial, flowering from July to September. The charming pale pink to purple shades combine fantastically well with other border plants. Plant Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline' with Lavatera 'Sweet Dreams' and delphinium (Larkspur), for example. Veronicas also look lovely planted next to roses.

Veronica longifolia 'Pink Eveline' is an especially lovely perennial. Its flower spikes are particularly elegant and bloom all summer long. The flowers make excellent cut flowers. The Veronica genus is part of the (Figwort) family, Scrophulariaceae.

Veronicas must be watered regularly to prevent the roots from drying out. You can extend the flowering season by regularly removing the spent flower spikes from your Veronicas. Bakker recommends adding plant food regularly when watering during the summer to encourage an abundance of flowers. Protect the Veronica from severe frost with a layer of fallen leaves or straw.
