Spiked Speedwell (Veronica Spicata Pink Goblin) - Long intense rosy-red flower spikes on compact, 16 inch tall plants. Pink Goblin veronica is a perennial plant winter hardy to zone 3. Very adaptable to various  soils with good drainage. Flower spikes are excellent for cutting, and attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Pink Goblin has a long bloom season when cut back after flowering and its repeat blooms are strong and showy. Deer and rabbit resistant.

How To Grow Spike Speedwell: Sow Veronica seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow Spike Speedwell flower seeds in small containers or starter trays using quality seed starting mix. Press the Speedwell seeds into the mix but do not cover seeds -- light is helpful for germination. Moisten mix and keep moist until germination begins. Transplant outdoors after frost danger has passed spacing them 10 inches apart. Veronica ground cover seeds can be sown directly outdoors as well. Prepare a seedbed of loosened soil that is weed free. Once frost danger has passed, sow the Veronica seed into the seedbed, pressing the seeds in tightly. Keep moist until germination.
