Veronica peduncularis ‘Georgia Blue’ (Speedwell) is a new perennial for us this year. The new growth emerges in spring tinged in red and the small true-blue flowers are 4 petaled with tiny white centers and bloom in spring. There’s a possible re-bloom in fall, especially if sheared back after the first flush. The foliage turns bronze when the weather turns cold and remains through winter. It comes in handy as an evergreen filler.
Plant in full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil. They look great tucked into rock gardens, along stone walkways and combined with smaller growing spring bulbs like Crocus or Tete-a-tete Narcissus.
Native to Ukraine and Asia, hardy zone 6-9.
