Good morning everyone,

I'm looking to change my Veronica - Sunny Border Blue in my full sun border bed. I very much like its height 2.5 ft, foliage, flower colour (purple) and extended bloom period but have had trouble with its longevity. Does any one have a suggestion for another Veronica or another plant?

Good Morning Kim... have you thought about lavender?? this would be good if you need to keep it purple for your color scheme..

Thanks for the suggestions. I currently have lavender in front of the veronica. Other plants that are in the bed include: Montgomery Spruce, Echinacea White Swan, Cimicifuga (bugbane) Brunette, Casablanca Lillies, and some inherited clematis

Mine seems to die back every few years too but self-seeds somewhere else, I just move it back to where I want it. I really like it and it makes a nice cut flower too. If you dead-head it regularly it flowers for such a long time, so give Veronica another try !!!!
