     Dense slender spires of deep pink flowers from early to late summer above toothed fresh green leaves. This marvellous deep pink speedwell is guaranteed to create an impact at the front of a mixed or herbaceous border. To thrive it requires a well-drained soil as plants that become water logged over winter are unlikely to survive.



  • Remove faded flower-stems in autumn. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring
