Whitewater Speedwell

Item #36276


Magnificent Winter Color

Whitewater Speedwell is a lovely plant to have as ground cover with its masses of tiny, 1/2-inch blooms that cover the dark green, glossy foliage. This spreader begins flowering in spring and can continue well into fall with the first frost. In warm climes, the foliage stays evergreen year-round; while in colder climates, winter turns the foliage a deep burgundy or bronze.

Whitewater Speedwell has a spreading habit and grows only to a height of 4 to 6 inches and a width of 24 to 30 inches. It fares well in full sunlight and partial shade. It can adapt to a variety of soils, including clay, loamy, normal, sandy and poor, and fares well regardless of whether the soil is moist or dry as long as it is well-drained. Whitewater Speedwell is disease, pest and deer resistant and heat, humidity and drought tolerant as well as cold hardy. Whitewater Speedwell with its plentiful, white blooms complements other colorful plants and makes a beautiful border or ground cover.

I planted these mid-Sept and it may be too late in the season for them to bloom this year (zone 5a). But they are doing well and look strong and healthy. I'm happy with the quality and look forward to seeing them bloom.

Excellent groundcover

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted these in the beginning of October. When they arrived they looked strong and healthy. Today during thanksgiving at my parents' where I planted them they are starting to bud. I couldn't believe it. Especially as cold as it's been that I thought they would bud and blossom in spring. This plant can survive cold weather. I'm going to order more in spring.
