Veronica allionii
Alpine Speedwell
Zone 2 to Zone 9
Plant Shapes: Cushion

This compact species of Speedwell is well suited to the rock garden, or for edging in the sunny border. It forms a low cushion or carpet of olive-green leaves, bearing chubby spikes of deep violet-blue flowers during the summer, at a time when many other rock garden plants have already finished blooming. Also nice in alpine troughs or mixed containers. In mild winter regions this stays evergreen. Clumps are easily divided in early spring or in autumn. Native to the European Alps. Easy to grow.
