TURKISH VERONICA (Veronica liwanensis): One of the most beautiful of all ground cover plants. Spreading sheets of tiny, rounded, dark green leaves 1-3 inches tall are smothered for 1 to 3 months in spring with clusters of tiny, true blue, lipped blossoms. Foliage turns burgundy-green in fall. Drought tolerant once established. Likes well-drained soils in full to part sun. Beautiful planted between paving stones. Photo courtesy of Sooner Plant Farm.
