Speedwell by any name
from Bloomington, MN
The survival of my Speedwell is up to debate. It seems to have wintered over, but grown between flagstones on a crushed limestone base it is off to a sluggish start. I fault the environment more than the plant at this point. It is in half shade, but gets some direct sun. and most important it is planted under a black walnut, though with the hardscaping done 9 years ago the roots may not have not likely reached up into the base material all that far. I will update HCG further as we see how it fares in this rather harsh environment. I'm sure it would have grown like a weed closer to my pond in the rich moist soil between the stones laid there
Merchant response: Good Day Jacksonrdmd,We are so sad to hear that your Veronica is not thriving as well as you hoped. It is very difficult to get most perennials to grow under a Black Walnut Tree as the toxin this tree produces can hinder growth around or underneath it. Please know that your success and satisfaction are very important to us which is why we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our products up to a year from the day your order has shipped.

Great ground cover.
from Morristown, TN
Has grown great in the poor gravel sand soil here. Survived one of the worst winter we have had in years. Blooms are beautiful.

Great in between flagstones
By Dr. Grumpy
from Colorado Springs, CO
This veronica is doing quite well in between the flagstones on my patio and path. It doesn't require any extra water and is beautiful in the spring. If anything, it's doing a bit too well, in that it's grown somewhat taller than the advertised 1" in height, so one has to step over them a bit on the path.

Used between flagstones. Spreads quickly and looks almost like the pictures
