Quick Overview:

This spiked speedwell cultivar is a compact, bushy plant which features dense, upright, terminal spikes (racemes) of tiny, deep rose-red flowers which bloom most of the summer. Flower spikes typically rise to 15″ tall. Lance-shaped, glossy green leaves (to 2″ long). Good cut flower.

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.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
