Award Winner. Spike Speedwell is the most popular of the various varieties available. This compact selection features colourful spikes of unusual, deep, violet-purple that last from late spring through summer, over a low mound of shiny dark-green leaves. Useful in the sunny border, especially dramatic when massed, as well as in containers. Floriferous and long blooming. Excellent cut flower. Removing faded spikes will encourage more buds to form. Easy and colourful.
