Product Information

New for 2019 and already one of our favourites, when we first saw this Veronica, we knew that our customers would love it. Veronicas produce one of the clearest blues available in perennials, and these fascinating flower spikes are also topped with green, making this one of the most eye-catching plants you will ever see - EVER!

Veronica 'Ulster Blue Dwarf' is a compact variety of speedwell which easily fills gaps in flower borders and is ideal in pots and containers where you can make the most of its absolutely stunning flower colour.

With the lance-shaped foliage forming a delightful mound, Ulster Blue Dwarf will give your garden year-round interest and immediately commands attention. Its long-lasting colour is never overpowering, so everyone will notice your garden!

Speedwells are easy to grow in any moist but well-drained, reasonably fertile soil, preferably in full sun although they will tolerate partial shade, making them a great addition to those areas that can be a little tricky - placed near the front of the border, they'll thrive.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to be potted on or planted out. Plants reach 20-30cm when in bloom. Note plants are dormant October - March so may show no leaves in the pot.

Top Tips

To keep tidy plants, cut back by half after flowering with a chop of your shears, or cut back to the base in late autumn.

Flower stems will sometimes fasciate - flattening and twisting. This is nothing to worry about and simply adds even more interest to your plant.

Care Information

  • Plants prefer moist, humous-rich soil with good winter drainage.
  • Can be divided every 3 years in spring or autumn.
  • If regularly dead-headed plants will continue flowering until late summer.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
