Hardy throughout the UK


Featuring a striking display of uniform, straight flower spikes in deep blue, graduating to an almost neon green, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Veronica spicata 'Ulster Dwarf Blue' (or Spike Speedwell) had been digitally imprinted on your garden! But no, these cyber-coloured flowers are all real, and super tactile too – adults and kids alike won’t be able to resist reaching and stroking the soft and furry spires. Plant this low-height marvel at the front of borders and in containers, where little (and big) hands can touch away to their hearts content.

The vivid colour combination makes for an electrifying display, but believe or not this trendy variety is a form of that cottage-garden favourite, the Speedwell. This means you can expect plentiful flowers throughout the whole summer season, with regular deadheading – and as a clump-forming perennial it will come back stronger each year, to form an eye-catching mound. Bold blues and greens go with any colour scheme, and Veronica spicata 'Ulster Dwarf Blue' is tough enough to handle a range of growing conditions – so we think there’s a place in every garden for this super-charged specimen.
