Speedwell Creeping Blue Veronica Repens is an evergreen carpeting perennial that is considered to be an alpine plant and can be successfully grown at elevations up to 7500 feet. Speedwell Creeping Blue seeds have to be just slightly pressed into the soil and not covered, because light is needed for germination. Blue Veronica Repens is a very compact, low-growing ground cover plant that only reaches a height of 1 - 2 inches featuring small, shiny green leaves and blooming in late spring and early summer with masses of showy, tiny light-blue flowers.
Speedwell Creeping Blue is an ideal choice for growing between stepping stones or massing as a compact ground cover over a small area. The plant makes a good cover for early spring-blooming bulbs, and it looks terrific in containers, rock gardens, flower beds and border fronts. Veronica Repens seeds germinate in 15-30 days, and once established Speedwell Creeping Blue is a tough and versatile ground-hugger that tolerates light foot traffic and resists deer and rabbit.
