Veronica peduncularis 'Georgia Blue'
Veronica for groundcover or rock garden – staying low, with clear blue flowers held singly rather than in spikes. Reportedly fairly drought-tolerant, and sure enough, it's done well in the sunny raised bed in front of our house. Flowers arrive in early spring, and keep coming, in all their popping-blue glory, throughout April.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Linda||Sep 17, 2009||In San Antonio, zone 9. Hottest driest summer ever. Saw these at Lowes this spring. Planted them. Part sun/shade. They died back a bit during July-August. However, they are growing again.
Drought tolerance is fairly decent. Probably wouldn't want to call it a "desert plant", but is probably drought tolerant thoughout most of USA.
I really did not expect this plant to perform as well as it did in South Texas|
