It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Space 12-18" apart. With soil covering roots up to crown (where roots meet the base of the stem). Do not plant in rich soil or plant will become weak and sprawl.
Grow in average, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Veronica is shallow rooted and therefore will not be particularly drought tolerant. Remember to water during dry spells. Divide every 3-4 years in spring or fall. Grows 12-24" tall.
