| ||Common Name: Speedwell-Gentian|
This award winning speedwell forms a dense, low clump of glossy, green leaves that looks right at home near the front of the border, in rock gardens, and in containers.
In late spring, ice blue flowers with deeper blue veins are produced in loose terminal spikes. Deadheading spent blossoms may extend the bloom time.
