Tall, erect stems with whorls of clean, lance-shaped, dark green leaves produce branched candelabras of narrow, long lasting, lilac-rose flower spikes.
Grow in a fertile, moist soil, in full sun or partial shade. Not tolerant of drought conditions. Prune veronicastrum back in early summer to increase branching and bloom count. This may help prevent the plant from flopping over late in the season.
