Veronica 'Minuet'
Common name   Speedwell
Hardiness Zone   5 - 8
Sun   Full sun
Soil   Medium
Flower color   Pink
Bloom Time:   June - August
Height   12 in.

General Culture:
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Remove spent flower spikes to encourage additional bloom. If plants are cut back to basal foliage after completion of summer bloom, remaining folia mounds will stay attractive until frost with some additional intermittent fall rebloom often occurring.
Noteworthy Characteristics:
This spike speedwell cultivar is an erect, compact, mounded, slowly-spreading plant which sends up dense, vertical terminal spikes (racemes) of tiny pink flowers to a height of 15". Blooms from early to late summer if spent flower spikes are promptly deadheaded. Toothed, silvery to grayish-green, lance-shaped leaves (to 2" long).
No serious insect or disease problems. Root rot may occur in wet, poorly drained soils, particularly in winter.
Rock gardens and border fronts.
