Veronicastrum 'Album' is a large, upright plant that will gradually spread to fill large stands. Each stem has whorls of long, dark green, lance-like leaves which is tipped with branching spikes of small tubular white flowers in late July-early August. Veronicastrum will tend to flop, especially if grown in part shade, if not provided some support. We grow ours up against a tall fence which we can use to attach string to restrain the plants about halfway up their full season height to prevent flopping. The tall white spikes of flowers in late summer are quite a sight waving in the breeze. Deer apparently don't like it that much.
