Description
Gorgeous Blooms for Years to Come

Soft yet stunning, the porcelain blue colour of Blue Bittersweet will definitely turn some heads. Stately spikes 12-18" tall are covered in pretty florets that bloom from bottom to top in late spring to early summer. Though it appears exceedingly delicate, Veronica is really quite hardy and easy to grow. A natural perennializer, it reliably re-emerges in the garden year after year.

Shipping Notes:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or your area may affect the anticipated shipping schedule above.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.

To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window above.

In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to delivery your orders via the USPS or FedEx. Large orders may be shippied in more than one package.

Bulb and perennial shipments direct from Holland are harvested in July and August dependent on the season and crop. Once fully inspected and packaged they are shippied direct to you in the most efficient manner to follow the dates above.

Upon placing your order you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate.

You will also receive an email notification when your order actually ships with an updated arrival estimate.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.
