Veronica Moody Blues Sky Blue is a wonderfully versatile perennial which, needing little attention, provides an abundant display of blue flowers in the form of candle-like spires. Each individual flower is delicately veined and flushed with colour, producing a show that is also attractive to native pollinators. Cut back the spires as they fade and more will follow, extending an already long flowering season (June – August). Alternatively, cut when in full bloom for impressive flower arrangements.

The foliage of V. Moody Blues Sky Blue is also appealing, forming a compact mat of dark green, lance-shaped leaves from which the spires ascend. Plant traditionally in a sunny herbaceous border, or create an unusual display in a container (just remember not to let it dry out).

One more thing that may add to V. Moody Blues Sky Blue's attraction: it is resistant to deer and rabbits.
