Veronica peduncularis (creeping speedwell) is a plant in the plantain family, Plantaginaceae. The ‘Georgia Blue’ Speedwell (USDA Zone: 4-9) was introduced a few years ago from Russia. This creeping speedwell has proven to be an outstanding selection for a bright display in the Spring garden.
Plants form a low creeping mat of deep green leaves, evergreen but turning bronze in the colder months. Small sapphire-blue flowers are studded all over during the spring, and sometimes again in late summer. Perfect for underplanting with spring flowering bulbs of all kinds, particularly miniature Narcissus. Plants may be easily divided in early Autumn. Clip back hard immediately after flowering, to maintain a tight, thick habit.

When I heard the name Veronika I had to think of an old German song. :-)) Veronika is also a girl's name.ReplyDelete
"Veronica, spring has arrived,
The girls are singing tralala,
All the world is like bewitched,
Veronika, the asparagus is growing,
Oh my Veronica, the world is green,
So let's go wandering into the forests.
Even the grandfather says to the grandmother:
Veronica, spring has arrived."
