Description

This is an extremely popular Speedwell, valued for its long display through the summer months. Plants form a bushy clump of crinkled, dark-green leaves, bearing spikes of deep violet-blue for weeks on end. Removing faded spikes will keep plants in flower for much longer. Excellent for cutting. Also performs well in mixed containers. Easily divided in fall or early spring. Powdery mildew is sometimes a problem, but growing plants in a moist site will help to prevent this disease. Flowers are attractive to butterflies.
