Anybody know what this is? My sister sent it to me last year and she has no idea what it is called. Says it flowers in the spring, sent up a few flowers sporadiclly all summer, then puts on another flower show in the fall. Its blooming now in zone 6a

I agree it is a Veronica, there are a number of species with a creeping habit and even with a pic of the leaves it would be difficult to say which one. The one seen most often in GC's here is V. prostrata.

That sure is pretty would you like to share a start of it with me?? Check my tradelist please!! I have a Blue Veronica, but it is a tall variety, I divided mine this year so I could trade you one plant, or I have seeds from last fall.

Thanks everybody! Looked up veronica and there are so many different varieties, don't think I'll ever know the correct species, but at least now I know what to call the poor little thing!!
