This Speedwell is the most exquisite blue in the Moody Blues® series, a title that was not easy to achieve! Bred by NovaFlora®, Dark Blue boasts spires of blooms arising on a small, well-branched plant over a long season: The gorgeous bloom wands share their sweet, subtle fragrance from late spring to early fall! These tidy plants are compact yet vigorous, and they don't mind a good cut--in fact, cutting will only prolong the bloom show! Great as a cutflower, container specimen, or source of front-of-the-border color, this versatile cultivar is a real treasure!

This deep blue Speedwell is one of the most dependable sources of color in the garden, blooming from late spring, going strong all summer, and even extending into fall! These ultra-dependable flower wands require no vernalization to bloom, which means that they will be beautiful the first year you plant them, and they will bloom like clockwork every year, no matter how mild your winters are!

Plant Veronica in a sunny, well-drained spot. Prepare the planting hole with some compost, then after planting add another thin layer of compost and lastly some mulch. In the right conditions this Speedwell will reward you with an impressive bloom show, sending spires of intensely blue blooms rising up every year in a towering display. Deadhead the bloom wands to extend the season, and divide up clumps every 3 or 4 years to keep them from getting too crowded. Zones 6 to 9.



Set 15 to 18 inches apart. Choose a location in full sun or light shade, where the soil is moderately fertile and – this is essential – well-drained.


Removing spent flower heads will prolong blooming period. An application of a balanced fertilizer in the spring, as growth commences, is a good idea. Plants may need dividing every 3 or 4 years, for renewal; do this in the spring or fall.


Zones 4-9

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market.
