(='Blauteppich') This is an excellent compact strain of Spike Speedwell. It forms a low bushy mound or tuft of dark green leaves, bearing short spikes of bright violet-blue flowers in early summer for several weeks. Versatile in the garden, at home as an edging plant, in the rock garden or in tubs and containers. Shear lightly after blooming to encourage fresh foliage and possibly repeat flowering in the autumn. Clumps are easily divided in spring or early fall.
