Gardeners' Notes:

Positive clareb On Sep 30, 2008, clareb from Missoula, MT (Zone 5a) wrote:

This low-growing Veronica is a great groundcover: it grows relatively quickly, but does not take over its neighbors; it is covered in sky blue blooms for weeks in spring; its foliage is evergreen (even in Zone 5); it does not require much water; it does not require any maintenance to look great (other than perhaps combing debris like fallen leaves out if it with your fingers); and, it does not appear to be picky about soil.
I especially like to underplant this Veronica with plant spring-blooming bulbs like crocus.
