Veronica peduncularis Georgia Blue - Speedwell

Veronica Georgia Blue provides colorful blue flowers to our perennial border through Spring and into the early part of Summer. Through the remainder of the year there are almost always a few blooms. Speedwell takes a brief respite during the hard frost period around the first of the year, and I am not certain that there wasn't a bloom on it then, but once we get a bit of sunshine Veronica Georgia Blue is back in bloom. Compared to this Speedwell's native Russia we are always in Spring and Summer. Veronica peduncularis Georgia Blue plants are only 3-4" tall but they slowly spread to 2 feet or more in a dense mat that is full of blooms. Veronica peduncularis Georgia Blue might be used in much the same ways a Lobelia would be, except the Veronica foliage consistently looks much better.
