Veronica austriaca ‘Ionian Skies’
Austrian Speedwell
Zone 2 to Zone 9
Plant Shapes: Tuft

Austrian or Hungarian Speedwell forms a low tuft or mound, well suited for use in the rock garden, wall or for edging perennial borders. This selection is particularly compact, bearing spikes of soft china-blue flowers in early summer. Shear back by half after blooming, if desired, in order to maintain a nice tight habit. Easily divided in spring or early autumn.
