Perennial - Creeping Speedwell

Flower Fave of the Day

Last year I planted Creeping Speedwell (Veronica Repens). It was a very small plant that I bought for $1.49. It did nothing last year. This year, however, it is in beautiful bloom! It has low growing, mat-forming foliage with clusters of small flowers, in this case, white flowers. Blooms during the spring and summer and is great for rock gardens, edging, borders and ground cover.

This perennial likes sun or part shade and grows to about 3" high.


  1. What a great blog! Thank you for the lovely posts and information. I will have to try the lasagna garden and see what happens. The Veronica is quite pretty.

  2. I'm enjoying visiting your blog ... I always love to find other Canadian garden bloggers. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  3. Another Veronica to look for is V. lewinensis (hope I've spelled it right!) and it's very low growing, and has gorgeous blue flowers which are just opening now. If you visit my blog, you'll quickly realize that I'm very partial to blue...
    Oh, and to answer comments on your blog, check the settings in the comment moderation department, in your dashboard. I've had some strange glitches there, too.


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
