    Georgia Blue Veronica can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings and also in cottage gardens.


    More About Georgia Blue Veronica...

    One from our 'Toe Tickler' collection, 'Georgia Blue Veronica is one of the most rewarding plants to have in the garden. Unfortunately for those of you who live in the state of Georgia in the US, this plant is not a native. This exciting groundcover veronica was actually discovered in 1979 in the Republic of Georgia and named by England's Roy Lancaster. It was misidentified as Veronica peduncularis, due to an incorrectly identified Kew Gardens herbarium sheet. So, now you know the rest of the story.

    Anyway, now that we have all the official data taken care of...

    Veronica umbrosa 'Georgia Blue' features very small, dark green, rounded foliage, which is evergreen and turns glossy purple in winter. The foliage lays on the ground, making a nice mat that is not not weedy. In late winter and early spring, February through April, the foliage is nearly hidden by an abundance of pretty cobalt-blue flowers that have cute little white eyes.

    Georgia Blue Veronica is easy to grow in a range of situations. It isn't too picky about soil type or soil moisture. We have it growing as a border in several spots throughout our gardens and it performs equally as well in dier soils as it does in somewhat moist soils. Well-drained moist soils are probably the best. It performs great in full sun but also in half a days sun.

    Georgia Blue works best as a border for garden beds and along paths. It is most impressive when planted in mass.
