Neutral Weezingreens On Nov 28, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Creeping Speedwell is a low-growing perennial with a sprawling habit that spreads by creeping rootstocks. It is fast-growing and long-lived. Short spikes of vibrant blue flowers bloom in late spring. Creeping Speedwell prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil, but poor sandy soil may deter this plant's floppy behavior. It is native to Central Europe and in New Zealand where it is referred to as Veronica latifolia. Naturalizing.
