Quick Overview:

‘Purpleicious’ is an erect, bushy, clump-forming speedwell cultivar that typically grows to 16-20” tall. Leafy foliage stems typically rise to only 6-8” tall but are topped with dense, vertical, tapered-at-the-top, dark purple flower spikes (to 12” long) which bloom in late spring to mid-summer.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Best performance occurs with consistent, regular moisture combined with sharp soil drainage, particularly in winter. Plants have shallow roots and are generally intolerant of dry soil conditions. Tolerates light shade. Remove spent flower spikes to encourage additional bloom. Plants may be cut back to basal growth after flowering.
