The plant was healthy and grew well, continuing to bloom during the summer. My disappointment was that it was not the color that is shown on all pictures that I looked at - all the pictures show beautiful indigo blue, this plant is violet, no blue at all.

Stunning color and form, grew to full size in one year. Star of my lake side garden right now! It’s not blue, however, so I’m still on the hunt for a deep blue spikey plant. But this one looks amazing next to my Berberis Sunjoy Mini Saffron.Lisa, Michigan, United States, 2 years ago
My first year growing this Veronica. I live in zone 6B and this summer was a very wet and hot one. They did very well. Great color! I did notice some dieback from too much rain, got a little "mushy" in the middle by August. I only have 8 plants so I cleaned them up and they rebounded nicely. Also they grew to about full size in one season which was very nice.Mel, New York, United States, 5 years ago
