Veronica prostrata

Scrophulariaceae
Ground covers, Perennials

VERONICA

Handsome plants ranging from less than an inch tall to 2 ft. in height. Masses of small (1/4- to 1/2 in.-wide) flowers in white, rose, pink, or pale to deep blue make an effective display. Use in borders and rock gardens. Prostrate kinds are good between stepping-stones, as bulb covers. Veronica (a perennial) is often confused with Hebe (a shrub).

Veronica prostrata

Stems are hairy and tufted. Some are prostrate and form 1– 1/2 -ft.-wide foliage mat; other stems grow erect to 8 in. high and are topped by short clusters of pale blue flowers in late spring or early summer.
