Broadleaf speedwell "Royal Blue" - Veronica teucrium.
It grows wild in the Caucasus, Western Siberia, Central Asia, Western Europe, and the Mediterranean.
A very attractive, unpretentious perennial with erect stems that forms spectacular, lushly flowering carpets up to 30-40 cm high, which are strewn throughout the summer with numerous, large inflorescences of pale lilac-blue flowers.
Mature plants form dense spherical bushes up to 25 cm tall. During flowering, the height of the plant is about 40-60 cm.
Leaves entire, glabrous above, hairy below. The flowers are bright blue, pinkish or white, collected in dense racemose inflorescences up to 7 cm long.
Blooms from the end of May 40-45 days. Fruiting. In culture since 1596.
At the end of flowering, the shoots lie in different directions from the center, and the inflorescences are on the periphery of the bush, forming a kind of "wreath".
Veronica plants look best when they are in contact with each other.
Winters without shelter (hardiness zones Z4 - Z8).
Grows well in any garden soil. Sun-loving. Moisture-loving, but drought-resistant. Good for planting in mixborders and cutting.
Recommendations for sowing and care: in spring, sow in seedling containers or ridges with loose, water- and breathable soil, avoiding thickening, sprinkling with a thin layer of sand, providing regular watering, loosening and shading from direct sunlight. The grown seedlings should be planted in a permanent place in the evening or in cloudy weather, well spilled and mulched. (1.0g = 4000 seeds).
In the spring, fertilize with a complete mineral fertilizer with trace elements; in the summer, it is advisable to add wood ash.
Carefully cut off faded shoots without damaging the base of the bush. Before winter, it is useful to add well-rotted compost.

Cultural Tips:
Grams per 1000 Seeds: 0,323
Seeds per Gram: 3100
Seeding Recommendation: 1 g / 1000 plants
Sowing Rate: 4 seeds per cell
Plug tray recommended size(s): 128 or 288
Germination: Rapidly germinating, keep seed in constant moisture (not wet) with temperatures of about +20°C. Do not cover the seed but tightly press into the earth. Keep in cooler conditions after germination occurs. Scheduling:
Best Sowing Dates: Anytime Sowing to Germination: 3 - 4 weeks
Germination to Transplant: 4 - 6 weeks
Transplanting to Salable Plant: 6 - 8 weeks
Cutting-Back at Transplanting: Cut-back once to keep more compact
Growing On: Container Size(s): 1-2 plugs per 11/12 cm; 2-3 plugs per 15 cm.
Vernalization: A prudent recommendation would be to provide 6-12 weeks at an average daily temperature of 5°C. Exposure to cold may not be necessary for flowering but might improve quality.
Forcing: An obvious place to experiment - following vernalization - would be raising daytime temperatures to 15° - 17°C. Provide 16 hours of continuous lighting. During the short days of winter, provide a night interruption lighting of 4 hours between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.
Fertilization: Medium (150-200 ppm).
