Details

4" tall x 10-12" wide. Veronica 'Blue Yonder' (U.S. Plant Patent 27,284) is a stunning garden hybrid Speedwell that blooms in mid- to late spring with a profusion of deep blue flower spikes held above a handsome mat of deep green foliage. "In my thirty plus years of gardening, it's flowers are the showiest of all the groundcover Veronica that I have grown," said HCG founder and chief horticulturist David Salman. A fantastic groundcover to plant with spring flowering bulbs; the blue makes the bulb flowers really "pop" ! Discovered in the gardens by the folks at Laporte Avenue Nursery of Ft. Collins, CO.

Comments about High Country Gardens Veronica Blue Yonder (U.S. Plant Patent 27,284):

I purchased 7 of the Blue Yonder and two months later, only 5 have survived. I planted them in full sun with some afternoon shade. The ones that are planted in more shade are surviving, although small. The two that we planted in almost round the clock sun dried up in our 88 degree heat and died despite watering 3-4 times per week. HCG issued me a credit for the two that died very graciously. You might try more filtered shade with these plants. They are a little delicate.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Veronica Blue Yonder (U.S. Plant Patent 27,284):

    I bought six plants and the four which survived are seemingly thriving although very small. Since I love this blue, I am eager to see some blooms next spring. If they come anywhere near the picture, I'll buy more.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
