Veronica longifolia x spicata 'Pink Marshmallow' is a dwarf perennial with slender, upright spires of dark and soft pink petals; and soft silver-pink buds. Prolific, long-blooming flowers glow against the bright-green, toothed foliage; and are a great source of nectar for bees and butterflies throughout the season. This pink speedwell is a compact, tidy plant for country and cottage garden beds and containers; and makes a lovely cut flower. Excellent drought tolerant summer perennial. High mildew resistance.
