Veronica repens ‘Sunshine’


Creeping Speedwell

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.540.270


Discovered in North Carolina, this has proven to be an excellent small-area ground cover or rock garden perennial. It forms a flat carpet of tiny golden-yellow leaves, with small near-white flowers appearing briefly in late spring. Nice as a contrast to blue or purple flowering companions. Wonderful between flagstones, also in pots or alpine troughs. Easily divided at almost anytime, by simply ripping apart into small pieces and replanting. Be sure to rake off any accumulated leaves in late fall to prevent smothering over the winter. Evergreen.
