|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.
Use this taller Speedwell in the middle of the flower border and as a cut flower. The foxtail-like dark pink flowers blend well with purple, white, and light pink.
