Veronica austriaca subsp. teucrium 'Kapitan'
A subspecies of Veronica austriaca, Austrian speedwell, or Saw-leaved speedwell, is surely one of the most widely-spread and best known of the veronicas.
This perennial from southern Europe grows freely on the edges of woods, on rocky slopes and in dry meadows of mountains.
Veronica teucrium 'Kapitan' has all the good traits (an easy to grow, hardy and long-lived perennial) with the added attraction of a long flowering period from late spring in intense blue blooms.
An average height of 30 cm makes it suitable for the edge of a sunny perennial border or for a rockery.
Goes well with Diascia, Artemisia, Sedum, Festuca, or under Anthemis.
Grow in sun or very light shade in ordinary, neutral to alkaline soil. Very hardy.
