Veronica peduncularis 'Georgia Blue' produces brilliant, blue flowers on evergreen, low, spreading plants in early spring. The masses of little flowers cover the plant during peak bloom. Its small, shiny green foliage turns a lovely maroon color in fall. Veronica 'Georgia Blue' makes an outstanding ground cover and is cute in containers as well. Also known as Creeping Speedwell, it will spread quickly on sites where it is happy, but it is not aggressive.
Veronica peduncularis 'Georgia Blue' is also sold as Veronica umbrosa, and as V. 'Oxford Blue' and V. 'Cambridge Blue'. This perennial has obviously connected with many folks who lay claim to its fantastic color and have given it their own name!
Veronica peduncularis 'Georgia Blue' prefers full sun, but tolerates light shade. It withstands poor, rocky soils and harsh conditions. Established plants will withstand drought.
