Veronica spicata ‘Chista’

Veronica spicata 'Chista' - Pot

I bought this on impulse as I had a really nice Veronica at my Manchester Allotment and this one fitted my colour scheme.

It got powdery mildew really badly straight away, but I increased watering and it seems to have recovered well. It’s even putting out some late flower spikes.

It was moved in the Feb 2021 re-jig and planted further down near the pond. Hopefully it won’t dry out quite so much in a shadier spot.
