Veronica peduncularis is a low-growing perennial that typically forms a dense foliage mat to only 4-6” tall, but spreading indefinitely outward by prostrate to ascending stems. Spires of tiny, round, blue flowers with a white throat in late March-May. Reblooms intermittently throughout the summer. Foliage is reddish-green in spring turning to deep green in summer and finally turning bronze in fall.
