Tips from Fran
Veronica pectinata Rubra—Which one of these is not like the other? This one!! It’s completely different than all the other Veronicas we offer. First of all…it’s gray and fuzzy. Very cool feel to it. Then, it has deep purple/ fading to light pink saucer flowers in early summer. Nice!! This one isn’t for anyone in humid areas- it just melts. But for those folks everywhere else with drier conditions, good drainage and a need for pink—we’ve got you covered!
