Veronica repens Creeping Speedwell


Veronica repens

Creeping Speedwell
Veronica repens is one of the best STEPABLES Creeping Perennials we have in the program. Creeping Speedwell is a super tough creeper that forms a solid mat of green on the ground and handles whatever scenario you can throw at it. Pearl white flowers cover entirely in mid spring and will make you love it even more! Works well between pavers or in a woodland setting and is a perfect lawn substitute. Excellent as an under story planting for rhododendrons, azaleas and ferns. Plant in container over spring flower bulbs for a nice treat in spring!

Gardening Tips from Fran


Veronica repens is one of our best! It works for almost every situation and people love it. It is fantastic in shade, part shade and part sun (some more northern places even full sun). It is super tight to the ground and has runners that grow just under the surface and on top which a perfect mat for walking on! Excellent between stones or as a full lawn substitute and the blooms are just stunning! You simply can’t go wrong on this one.


Fairy Gardeners! This plant has your name on it!
