Plant Details

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 tumbling plant that looks good in a container, rock garden or front of border. 

Introduced from Georgia by Roy Lancaster.

Height: 10cm

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.

Common name(s): Speedwell

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
