Veronica repens, also known as Creeping Speedwell, is a low-growing perennial groundcover with small, glossy, dark green leaves. It forms a dense mat of foliage and produces small, light blue flowers in spring and summer. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Veronica repens is perfect for rock gardens, between stepping stones or in a mixed border, and is also effective as a groundcover or trailing over walls. It pairs well with other low-growing plants such as dwarf iris, ajuga, and creeping phlox. The blue flowers of Veronica repens also complement well with purple grape hyacinths (Muscari) and yellow or pink Aquilegia.
