notes

Perfect for use as ground cover in beds and borders, Veronica spicata Ulster Blue Dwarf, also known as Veronica spicata Royal Candles, is a slowly spreading, compact perennial with glossy, toothed leaves and striking, candle-like spires of star-shaped flowers that may be short but are abundant and attractive to butterflies.
