Erect spires of vivid blue, saucer shaped flowers from May to July above low tufts of deeply toothed, greyish-green leaves. This mat forming speedwell makes an attractive and long flowering edge for a sunny, well-drained herbaceous or mixed border. The vivid blue flowers are excellent for attracting butterflies and bees into the garden. Garden care: Remove faded flower-stems in autumn. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
