Plant details

Veronica's Choice' was introduced in 1973 by Pennells of Lincoln. It produces mauve-lavender flowers throughout the summer. These are double earlier in the season and single later on. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps. Plant in a sheltered position that is not north-facing.
