According to legend, Saint Veronica used her handkerchief to soothe Christ’s brow, and forever after, it bore markings that are supposedly replicated in these long blooming Speedwell flowers. Flourishing in sunny, well drained sites, our Veronica selections are undemanding, and deliver dazzling color to the summer border.
A hybrid between Veronica armena and Veronica pectinata, this stellar weed-suppressing evergreen ground cover was introduced in 2007 by Dr. Jim Ault from the Chicago Botanical Garden. ‘Tidal Pool’ touts its parents’ finest traits plus exhibits a more close-knit, faster-to-spread prostate habit that’s festooned with oodles of small, white-eyed, vivid blue-violet blossoms. Acquiescent to cold, heat, humidity and dry conditions, the petite, slightly pubescent oak-shaped green leaves are dusted with blue and emphasize versatile good looks for nuzzling against steps or rocks, edging pathways, draping over walls and any other sunny, well-drained nook.
