Veronicastrums.....who's growing them

No, Veronica is different.   I think they are of the same family....leaves, flowers and habit are same.  Veronicastrum grow more elegantly to 4' and are less floriferous but flower slightly later with more subtle paler colours.  Veronicastrums are the classy cousins of Veronicas!

Tim, I imagine it to be very difficult to get it out of that planter in one piece but you prob will.

I would take a vigorous outer piece using an old saw and replant in John innes.  Someone will prob want the rest but I would take it to the local skip

Yes Kelsea have always been best for me too.  You're beating me for size. In the veg plot come September theres no better sight than golden brown ripening onions spread out in the sun.
