A small ground cover with delicate lilac pink flowers.
Prostrate speedwell is native to Europe and forms a small carpet of prostrate stems with evergreen leaves.
The variety we offer, Veronica prostrata 'Lilac Time' produces delicate lilac pink flowers in early summer. Ideally you should plant it as edging for a border, in a rock garden, along a wall or in a trough.
Grow in sunlight or in partial shade in ordinary soil. Height: 10 cm. Non-invasive.
– prune the inflorescences after flowering to encourage new foliage;
– avoid heavy, damp soil that is badly drained in winter.
