This elegant spired bloom is known as Veronica. In recent years, this flower has become extremely popular for wedding flowers to use in bouquets, table arrangements and other designs. It is ideal to create a playful shape and works with every colour scheme.
Colours and Shapes
Veronica Longifolia is a genus of the Plantaginaceae family and is generally thought of as a summer flower. However, in actual fact, it is more or less available all-year round as it is grown under glass commercially. Veronica has elegant spires of flowers available in three main colours, including white, purple/blue and pink. The coloured plume of the flower is the most striking part.
It can vary in height from 50cm to 80cm and is sold in bunches of between 20 to 50 stems. Below, we have listed four of the most popular varieties that are sold to our customers. All of which can be found on our website here.
Clea Diana (purple)

Shop Care Tips

- Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle with a sharp knife.
- Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food.
- Place the Veronica in the buckets.
