|Long-time garden favorites, Speedwells' elegant spiky flowers appear on small, creeping, rock garden or container plants, as well as medium and tall flower border and cutting garden candidates. Flowers mass in white, rose, pink, and pale or deep blue. Their attractive pointed leaves range from glossy to gray and fuzzy. Low, mat-like varieties can tolerate less water than taller forms. They prefer full sun in cool climates and part shade in hot climates. Sold in containers in the spring.
Known for the texture of its thick, blue, flower spikes and quilted glossy leaves, this won the Perennial Plant Association's Plant Of The Year award. Cut back spent flower stalks to encourage more blooms.
