Veronica ‘Aztec Gold’

Brilliant gold foliage spreads in dense mats and is complemented by rich blue flowers in May. This versatile groundcover works well in mixed containers, hanging baskets, over walls, etc. Great to contrast with our top selling black leaved Heuchera 'Obsidian'. Foliage goes chartreuse in partial shade, which is still very nice!
