veronica liwanensis

Nice plant, but nowhere near as floriferous as the Veronica tauricola that I had at the old house, and not as brilliantly blue. It has green leaves whereas V. tauricola had grey leaves, and it has much more prostrate growth, whereas V. tauricola was more shrubby. V. liwanensis is easier to propagate, and much more rapid in growth. Also requires more water. So far, it seems to have a slightly longer bloom season as well, which is nice since V. tauricola's bloom season was about 10 days. Yeah, I miss my old Vt. Nowhere to be found, though, in nurseries or on the web. Unless I beg the new owners of the house to dig up some if any survived their dog.
