Veronica Waterperry Blue Description

Few other ground covers are as easy and adaptable as Veronica Waterperry Blue.  Waterperry Blue is semi-evergreen & forms a ground hugging, fast spreading solid mat growing 2" tall and 12" wide.

Solid green foliage turns a bronze-purple hue with the onset of cooler fall temperatures.

Hundreds of butterfly attracting blue-violet blooms appear in early summer and often rebloom intermittently throughout the summer. 

This salt tolerant groundcover is perfect for lining driveways & walkways and tolerates light foot traffic. One of the few groundcovers that tolerates a wide range of soil ph - from 6.6 - 8.5.

Plant in full sun to part shade. Lovely in drifts or plant where taller spiked plants can push through the foliage. Space anywhere between 12-24" depending on how quick you desire coverage.

Lovely around the base of Coneflowers, Knock Out Roses.

Ideas and How-to's



Soil: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil.
Light: Full sun, but will tolerate light shade in the South.
Water: Best performance occurs with consistent, regular moisture with sharp soil drainage (particularly in winter).
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Feed with a general purpose slow release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
Winterizing: If not cut back in summer, prune down to basal growth in late autumn.
Maintenance & Pruning: To keep tidy plants, shear back by 1/2 after flowering. This plant can be easily propagated by dividing clumps in spring.
