Veronica 'Waterperry Blue'

Speedwell-Creeping

This beautiful evergreen perennial softens the edges of rock walls, stony pathways and rock gardens as it creeps to form a dense groundcover. Its shiny green foliage is tinged with burgundy tones in cool weather. Delicate sky blue flowers appear in spring and rebloom sporadically throughout summer.
