    • 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.

    • 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.
