This little plant is a fantastic addition to a cottage garden or in the rock garden thanks to its mat-forming tendencies. Veronica gentianoides also known as Gentian Speedwell forms a dense mat of thick, dark glossy green foliage that has tall spires of pale sky blue flowers adorned with darker veining up to approximately 25cm from early summer. This little plant looks wonderful growing amongst other perennials in the front of the border and it is a magnet for bees. Veronica gentianoides likes a moist but well drained position in either full sun or partial shade. This plat looks great planted with Alchemilla mollis with the acid green flowers that show of the blue of the Veronica. Great as a groundcover. Remove spent flowers to encourage repeat flowering in the following year as well as encouraging a compact habit. Easily divided in autumn or spring.
