Dwarf version of spike speedwell. The tightly clustered dark-green leaves make a good groundcover; flowers appear in mid-June in our garden. It gets a bit lost, even along the front, in our front perennial border - I should move it to our rock garden one of these days.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
