Veronica umbrosa ‘Georgia Blue’ forms a low cushion of bronze-tinted green foliage, from which masses of intense blue flowers appear from late spring to autumn. It’s ideal for edging paths or borders, and makes a fine specimen for a rockery. The RHS has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
Flowers from April to August.
A lovely neat plant that looks good in a container, rock garden or front of border.
Introduced from Georgia by Roy Lancaster.
The genus name Veronica honours Saint Veronica who reportedly gave a handkerchief to Jesus so he could wipe sweat from his face on the way to Calvary, with some genus plants having markings that resemble the markings on the sacred handkerchief.
