HOCUS POCUS SPEEDWELL

Veronica x 'Hocus Pocus'

Buy Hocus Pocus Speedwell online. Incredibly long, violet purple wands of brilliant color comprise the top 2/3 of 'Hocus Pocus', much larger than any comparable variety. It is easy to pick out from a distance when driving by our trial gardens, even when we're driving a little too fast! This plant really has everything we could ask for in a Veronica: incredibly showy flowers, a uniform habit, clean foliage, and branched flowers which result in a longer bloom time. At 16-20in tall, it makes the perfect pot plant for retail. This one is hard to top!

Mature Height:

16-20 Inches

Mature Spread:

10-12 Inches
