Veronica Trehane description
Bright blue flowers over a golden mound in the spring.
The gold foliage prefers a little shade to prevent it from getting scorched in strong sunshine.
How easy is it to grow:
Good for the front of a border, alpine bed, rock garden, in containers, or by a patio and is a little tricky to keep it looking smart all of the time because it is susceptible to leaf spot. It is okay in any reasonably drained soil, provided it has a little shade and isn’t too dry.
