This plant was quite easy to start from purchased seeds. This is it's first year from seed and I got 1 small bloom on one plant out of 9.

This speedwell variety is a mix of blue, pink and white. Flowers look like spikes. It is not picky about soil conditions. Flowers bloom from June to August. Great for cut flowers.
