Veronica umbrosa ‘Georgia Blue’ (Creeping Speedwell)
Have you ever been searching for just the right plant that will add a pop of color to a slope or rock garden? If so, Veronica umbrosa ‘Georgia Blue’ is one you don’t want to miss! The rich blue flowers with creamy white centers create drifts of color that can be seen from quite a distance away. ‘Georgia Blue’ has a low-growing, spreading growth habit and is a great choice for a groundcover or spilling over the edge of a garden wall. This durable plant is very easy to grow and has a long bloom season. When the bloom cycle is complete, and the flowers are looking tired, shear it back to promote re-bloom.
Veronica umbrosa ‘Georgia Blue’ can be grown in full sun to part shade. The Sunset Climate Zones are 2-9, 14-24. In very cold winter areas it’s best to provide it with some protection from hard frosts. Plant in well-drained soil, rich in organic matter and provide regular irrigation. It grows 4 – 6” tall and 12 – 24” wide. Hummingbirds and Butterflies are attracted to the sweet little flowers but rabbit and deer will stay away. We are growing Veronica umbrosa ‘Georgia Blue’ in 1 gallon containers. Visit our website www.clearwatercolor.com to see photos of these and many other plants we are growing.
