Veronica (Veronica Spicata) or Spike Speedwell Ground Cover
Over 20 super tiny seeds per package
Perennial Zones 3 - 8

What a strong bloomer! These lovely blue blooms are easily grown from Veronica seeds, and they will keep coming all summer long. Veronica Spicata, commonly called Spike Speedwell, has a low, compact and mat-forming habit that makes it well-suited as a ground cover plant. Veronica flowers form on spikes, they are violet-blue and are highly attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The Spike Speedwell plant is small in size making a wonderful container plant, as well.

It is a hardy perennial that performs in sunny conditions and tolerates partial shade. It's not too picky about soil, but it does need to have good drainage. The Spike Speedwell plant requires a moderate amount of water, and it blooms best when the spent flower heads are trimmed back. It is fairly resistant to both deer and rabbits.

Sow seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks prior to last spring frost.
Press the seeds into the mix but do not cover seeds -- light is helpful for germination.
Keep moist until germination begins.
Transplant outdoors after frost danger has passed spacing them 10 inches apart.

Veronica ground cover seeds can be sown directly outdoors, as well. Prepare a seedbed of loosened soil that is weed free. Once frost danger has passed, sow the seed into the soil pressing the seeds in tightly. Keep moist until germination.
