Blue Wooly Speedwell
According to legend, Saint Veronica used her handkerchief to soothe Christ’s brow, and forever after, it bore markings that are supposedly replicated in these long blooming Speedwell flowers. Flourishing in sunny, well drained sites, our Veronica selections are undemanding, and deliver dazzling color to the summer border.
All the way from Asia Minor’s sunny Mediterranean haunts comes this irresistible yet hard working evergreen ground cover. Offering up hordes of endearing bright blue, white-eyed blooms over a long period, this prostate Speedwell crafts a gray-green, matting carpet defined by light hairy stems and fuzzy deep cut foliage that looks a bit like miniature oak leaves.
Veronica pectinata is tailor-made for softening steps, rock walls or a path’s edge and is a cinch to grow, requiring only minimal water and a well drained nook.
Size: 2' 0"–4' 0" high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
