Veronica umbrosa 'Georgia Blue'

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 umbrosa 'Georgia Blue'

Forms a 6 to 8-in.-high mat that spreads to several feet wide; small dark green leaves turn bronze in cool weather. Profuse, white-eyed, cobalt-blue flowers appear in spring, with a few blossoms showing up throughout summer and fall as well.
