Go Back Veronica Red Fox

Veronica 'Red Fox'

Plant Type: Perennials

A dimunitive form of veronica, 'Red Fox' is a good selection for small spaces or the front of the border. The bright fuchsia-pink flower spikes appear over a long time, in excess of five weeks, beginning in midsummer. Butterflies love to drink their sweet nectar.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:


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.
