Tolerates Moderate Foot Traffic
Forms a neat evergreen mat of glossy foliage. Whether snuggling around the edges of stepping stones or rambling along a garden path, this ground cover is top-notch. In spring, the foliage is obscured with jaw-dropping periwinkle-blue flowers. Needs afternoon shade in warmer climates. The dense habit of Veronica Liwanensis can be used as a lawn substitute. Turkish speedwell is a reliable, drought tolerant groundcover.
