Pure white flowers most of the summer.

Veronica Whitewater

If you like 'Tidal Pool', you will love this pure white-flowered sport that is covered in glistening white flowers from April to June.

Whitewater prostrate speedwell is an attractive and durable groundcover adaptable to both sun and partial shade. Its glistening white flowers produced from April into June give way to attractive glossy dark green leaves on a dense groundcover plant. The leaves turn a dark burgundy in autumn and winter. Veronica ‘Whitewater’ is a stable branch sport from the popular Veronica ‘Waterperry Blue’. Discovered by John Wachter at Elite Growers, Inc., Ingleside, Illinois, and co-introduced with Chicagoland Grows®. An excellent groundcover plant, useful in the rock garden, along paths and border edges, cascading over stone walls or among boulders, between pavers, and in the alpine garden. Use it as a “living mulch” under taller, airy shrubs or perennials that allow light through to their bases, or among bulbs such as lilies. This durable and adaptable groundcover plant is dense enough to suppress weeds, and tough enough to tolerate some foot traffic.
