Formerly considered a subspecies of Veronica alpina.
From Flora of Alberta (Moss and Packer):
"Perennial; with slender rootstock; stems erect, somewhat decumbent at base, 0.5-3 dm high, villose, glandular; leaves ovate to oval or oblong, obtuse, sessile or subsessile, entire or somewhat crenate, glabrous or pubescent; raceme short and dense, glandular-pubescent, elongating in fruit; pedicels 2-4 mm long; corolla blue, 4-5 mm wide; capsule obtuse or emarginate, glandular hairy." Habitat: "Moist subalpine and alpine areas." Range: "Greenland, Europe: Alaska, Yukon, western MacKenzie District south to California, northeast Utah, Arizona, New Mexico; eastern Hudson's Bay to Labrador, Gaspe."

An extremely hardy little plant.
