(aka: Veronica peduncularis) This exciting groundcover veronica was discovered in 1979 in the Republic of Georgia 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. Veronica umbrosa 'Georgia Blue' features very small, dark green, rounded foliage (glossy purple in winter) that lays flat on the ground, making a nice mat...not weedy. In late winter and early spring (February through April, in NC) the foliage is nearly hidden by an abundance of medium-blue flowers. Very special for the spring garden...great planted with daffodils.
