Without question, Veronica pectinata (Woolly Speedwell) is one of our finest xeric groundcovers. The wooly evergreen foliage creates a handsome, dense, gray-green garden carpet. In early spring the foliage disappears under a profusion of white-eyed, true-blue fading to lavender flowers. This durable, long-blooming perennial is not picky about its planting site; it thrives in any well-drained soil. An easy-to-grow must-have groundcover for any garden, Woolly Speedwell is an outstanding companion for early to mid-spring blooming bulbs where its blue flowers provide and cool backdrop to wildflower tulips, miniature daffodils, miniature Iris and Crocus. Deadhead after spring bloom. Can tolerate occasional foot traffic. Cutting propagated. Flat of 32 plants will cover 48 square feet when planted together. 2" tall x 18" wide.
