Georgia Blue Veronica
One of my favorite plants for late winter and spring has been a Veronica peduncularis "Georgia Blue." I had never grown them before, but was looking for a low-growing plant with blue flowers for the front of the bed, so when I saw these on the half-price table, I bought three to give them a try. They bloomed in January when it was warm, but were unharmed by a February cold snap, and have retained their blooms to this day. The flowers are small, a deep blue with a white center, and thrive in my sunny, south-facing bed.
