Veronica - so many different uses in the landscape. At home in the rock garden, between flagstones in the patio or as a slow growing but long-lived ground cover in the xeric garden, this little plant always looks good. The tiny dark green leaves disguise it, looking like another creeping thyme; but when it comes into bloom, it's covered with hundreds of small azure blue flowers.
