Masses of violet-blue spikes dart up above the compact, upright, deep green foliage of 'Royal Candles' all summer long. Butterflies love to drink their sweet nectar. Unlike some other Veronicas, the bottom foliage of this variety does not die out. This trait coupled with its shorter habit makes it ideal for the front of the border, as an edging, or in containers. Many people consider this cultivar to be the best upright form of veronica.
This perennial is tolerant of a wide range of well-drained soil types. Amending soils, especially very heavy and light types, with generous amounts of organic matter will result in improved performance. Although tolerant of partial shade, it will flower better in full sun. Deadheading will promote additional blooms. Shear back the foliage if it becomes worn-looking after flowering.
