Trehane has been happy in my zone 3 rockery bed for ten years. It's still quite small though. Love the stunning blue/chartreuse combination.

This nice little Veronica is often mislabeled and sold as
"Veronica austriaca 'Trehane'

It is also certainly not to be confused with a totally different plant: Veronica montana 'Corinne Tremaine'
