This fast-growing British native species is useful as an edging plant, producing glossy green trailing foliage and tiny blue flowers all summer long. The waxy leaves are evergreen and last through into the winter, surviving frosts and ice and making it one of the few native plants to give winter interest to the pond. For a more compact plant and to encourage greater flowering, it can be trimmed regularly. The flowers are attractive to insects and the plant is on the RHS 'Perfect for Pollinators' list.
We recommend starting your Veronica beccabunga off in a pot of 1 litre capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
