Just brought home several of these:

Speedwell (Veronica 'Sunny Border Blue')

Great looking plant...dark green almost glossy leaves, blue flower spikes, nice aroma, and I haven't even planted them and bees and butterflies are all over them!

Anyone have tips or warnings about this plant? Growth issues? I'd love for this to be a regular worry free perrenial.

Speedwell is a nice plant , if you like it it comes in many colors and heights.
I cut mine down after the first flush of blooms and it reliably comes back for another bloom.
Butterflies seem to be especially attracted to this plant and easy care here.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

I'll definitely keep an eye out for other variants. Bees and butterflies work them over all day long.
