Veronica repens

Veronica repens
Common name creeping speedwell
Family scrophulariaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers blue/white (spring)
Size 1"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Sweet little mat-forming creeper, with the slightest blue markings on the tiny white flowers. It also borders on being invasive. We grow it between the paving stones in our side garden, and try to keep it out of the garden beds.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
