DescriptionGorgeous Blooms for Years to Come
Soft yet stunning, the porcelain blue colour of Blue Bittersweet will definitely turn some heads. Stately spikes 12-18" tall are covered in pretty florets that bloom from bottom to top in late spring to early summer. Though it appears exceedingly delicate, Veronica is really quite hardy and easy to grow. A natural perennializer, it reliably re-emerges in the garden year after year.
