Woolly veronica is a resilient, drought-tolerant groundcover. It grows as a vigorous mat of fuzzy, green leaves.
In late spring, it produces many tiny, blue-purple flowers with white centers. The leaves may be evergreen or turn shades of purple in the winter. This is a fantastic plant for a low-maintenance landscape, since it needs hardly any care.
Woolly veronica has thrived at the Xeriscape Demonstration Gardens. It grows well in hot, dry conditions. Although the leaves are less shiny than other creeping veronicas, the resilience of this plant and tolerance to adverse growing conditions makes it very desirable.
None generally needed. Rake off debris after winter, if needed.
