Description / Veronica 'Atomic Ray Mix' Speedwell

Introducing the Atomic Ray Series, a meticulously curated selection of hybrid Speedwell developed by the esteemed Jan Verschoor, a renowned plantsman hailing from the Netherlands. Derived from the esteemed V. spicata, these hybrids have been meticulously chosen for their exceptional form and color, engineered to thrive with ease and require minimal maintenance. Basking in the sun, these perennials form compact, well-branched clumps, exhibiting disciplined growth habits and unfurling blooms in a mesmerizing display from the base of the raceme to its summit.

The 'Atomic Ray Mix' presents a captivating spectrum of seven vibrant colors: 'Amethyst', 'Hot Pink', 'Pinkish White', 'Pink', 'Red', 'Silvery Pink', and 'Sky'. This kaleidoscope of purple, pink, blue, white, and red blooms creates a stunning visual composition, perfect for embellishing beds, borders, or meadows. The more you plant, the more spectacular the effect, as these resilient perennials return year after year to grace your landscape with their enduring charm. Notably long-lived, the blooms themselves boast impressive longevity.

Flowering commences in early summer, adorning your garden with weeks of continuous bloom. Prune Veronica Atomic Mix lightly in midsummer to stimulate fresh basal growth and prolong the floral display into late summer. Veronica serves not only as a long-lasting cut flower but also as a standout in gardens and containers, offering a striking contrast to roses, peonies, echinacea, poppies, and other early summer bloomers.

The sinuous bloom wands emerge prolifically, casting rays of pink, blue, white, and red blooms above the tidy foliage, creating a haven for butterflies. Rest assured, these healthy hybrids boast good resistance to common issues like powdery mildew and rust, while deer and other pests tend to steer clear.

For optimal performance, plant these speedwells in full sun or partial shade, as ample light is crucial for encouraging their best blooms. Utilize average, well-drained soil, maintaining a spacing of 12 inches between plants to allow for optimal growth. Anticipate a mature height of 15 to 18 inches.

Please note: The Atomic Ray series is registered with the COPF, and unauthorized propagation is prohibited. Plant color may vary upon purchase.

Enjoy veronica in your sunny garden. With the extensive variety of colors and speedwell plant heights, you're sure to find the perfect veronica plants for your garden. Learn how to care for these spiky spires of perennial flower beauty in our Horticulturist's Guide to Growing Speedwell.
