It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting. 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 a while 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.
