Veronicastrum virginicum 'Roseum'

Like the white flowered form of this species, Veronicastrum virginicum 'Roseum' is upright and architectural and, because of its height, is often used in the back of the border. It has similar foot-long bloom spikes encircled by shorter axilary spikes. The flowering spikes narrow to pointed tips. The main difference between the two forms is that the flowers of 'Roseum' are white with a pink blush. The dark green foliage whorls up the stems. Both have long been underused in gardens but, with the resurgence of interest in North American wildflowers, their popularity seems to be on the rise.
