SOLVED: Gorgeous little groundcover

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Isn't this precious? My friend gave me some starts of it last year for our planter box. Now, tell us what it is! Hope this comes through okay; I've been trying to reduce my file sizes, but I'm not always getting them right! ":o)

Looks like veronica, maybe veronica repens?

It's similar to Veronica, but I don't think that's it. The pictures I've seen of it don't quite look like it. Doggone it. My friend was over today and she a friend gave her a start of it years ago and she's never seen it in any catalogs. She's as anxious to know as I am! :o)

I take that back...I think it could be Veronica peduncularis. My scan made it look more lavender, but it's really pretty blue. Here are a few varieties I found...

V. peduncularis 'Georgia Blue', named after the republic of the former Soviet Union.

V. peduncularis 'waterperry'. The flowers are very similar, but this one's 3" tall compared to mine - which is about 10-12" tall.
