Georgia Blue creeping speedwell is a vigorous, evergreen, carpeting perennial native to Ukraine, the Caucasus, and southwestern Russia. From spring to early summer, cobalt-blue saucer-shaped flowers with white eyes cover its cultivar 'Georgia Blue', with a scattering of rebloom later in the season. The small, glossy leaves turn bronze tones in winter.
This plant performs best in full sun in well-drained soil. Use it as a groundcover or edging or as a container or rock garden plant.
