Stunning Cheery Foliage
A ray of sunshine anywhere it is planted! Its wide creeping carpet of golden yellow leaves contrasts beautifully with blue or purple flowering neighbors. Great between stepping stones or in a rock garden or trough. Evergreen in southern gardens. Divides easily. Veronica Sunshine is primarily grown for his stunning cheery foliage but will sometimes briefly bloom with clusters of pearl-white flowers in spring. This creeping Speedwell with its petite foliage closely resembles Baby’s Tears. A lovely mat-forming, ground-hugging perennial.
