Veronica incana Silbersee
Attractive silvery gray foliage support deep blue tubular blooms on compact 12 inch spikes in mid summer. The foliage looks as if it has been encased with frost or a light snow which makes a beautiful and interesting color contrast. Mature plants grow to 12 inches tall and spread 16 inches wide with a nice mounding habit that looks tidy even when plants are out of bloom. Grow in well-drained, moisture retentive soil in full sun to morning shade. Soils should be on the rich side with a sandy organic soil working the best. Plants will flower the second year but the first year the plants form into a nice attractive clump. Hardy perennial in zones 3-8. Pkt. 25
