When to Plant Veronica Roots
Plant Veronica roots after the danger of frost has passed in early spring.
Where to Plant Veronica Roots
Veronica performs best in full sun in average, medium-moisture, well-drained soils. It can tolerate partial shade if needed. The plants perform best with consistent moisture combined with sharp soil drainage.
How to Plant Veronica Roots
Loosen the soil and mix in compost. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the plant's container. When placing the plant in the hole, ensure the top of the root ball in level with the soil surface. Water thoroughly.
How to Care for Veronica
Water in summer if your rainfall is less than one inch per week. Keep covered with a thin layer of compost, followed by a two-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture. Deadhead your plants to extend the bloom time. After the first killing frost, cut back stems to one to two inches above the soil line. Divide perennials in autumn or spring every few years.
