About Veronica Flowering Plant: Veronica is one of the best flowering plants, and it has many varieties like veronica spectra, royal candles, Georgia blue, first love, and much more. There is only one method to grow all varieties. The scientific name is Veronica, and it belongs to the Plantaginaceae family, and the Plantaginaceae family has more than 450+ species worldwide.
Many types of flowers bloom on this plant, and the flowers look wonderful. The colour of the flowers depends on the variety of what kind of seeds you have sown. Plants grow up to 1 foot to 4 feet, depending on the variety. When the height of the plant grows up to 2 to 4 feet, and many flowers start blooming, the plant needs staking.
How To Plant at Home
You can also grow Veronica plant from seeds so that you can buy its seeds from the online shop or local nursery. The best time to plant seeds is late winter (December or January).
Prepare a soil mixture: To make a soil mixture, take well-drained garden soil (50%) and vermicompost (50%). Mix it well. Initially, take a small flower pot ( at least 4 inches) and fill the pot with soil mixture(70%). Now pour Veronica seeds on the soil and cover the seeds with the remaining soil mixture. After, give water to the pot and place the flower pot in an indoor location or semi-shaded area.
Before planting: Veronica plant easily grows in USDA hardiness zone 3-10 and soil should be well-drained or slightly acidic/alkaline. While mixing the soil mixture remove all pebbles and small stones.
After 14 to 20 days, germination starts from the seeds, and tiny buds/leaves appear from the plants. If the plants have grown from 3 to 4 inches, we need to transplant them separately.
How To Transplant
Prepare a soil mixture: To make a soil mixture, take well-drained garden soil(40%), coco peat (30%), and vermicompost (30%). Mix it well and take a large flower pot (10 inches or more) or clay pot. In a flowerpot, Check the drainage hole; if there is no drainage hole, then make 5, or 6 holes.
Fill the soil mixture in the flower pot and dig a hole 5 to 6 inches deep. Now plant every plant in soil and pour 2 inches layer of soil mixture. Give water properly and place the flower pot in full sunlight.
Top 3 Caring Tips
Watering: Before sprouting, give water only 1-2 times a week and after germination, give water only two times a week. In the summer season, give water 2 to 3 times a week and during the winter season, once a week. Always use the water-spray gun.
Temperature: Temperature is the main role of every plant. If the temperature is good, then the plant’s growth is good, and if the temperature is not well, then the plant’s leaves fade and dry. Healthy and fresh Veronica needs temperature between 15°C to 30°C.
Pests & Disease: Many insects (aphids, scale, thrips, and more) and diseases (fungal diseases and leaf spot) attack these plants, so always spray pesticide medicine to kill insects. Before spraying, check out the instruction on medicine.
Bloom Time: The flowers start blooming on the Veronica plant for 3 to 4 months (spring season) after sowing the seeds, and these flowers are of many colours like blue, white, purple, and more. Flower colour depends on verities. Each flower has 4 to 5 petals, with the centre part white and yellow. Each flower has two stamens with the colours white and red. Stamens’ colour depends on the verity of Veronica.
