New Century Veronica (Veronica x. ‘New Century’) is a nice cross of Veronica liwanensis and Veronica pectinata which produces a soft carpet of small blue flower saucers which creates the illusion of a sea of blue. New Century Veronica’s foliage turns bronze in winter. New Century makes a nice bed, border and rock garden addition and is drought tolerant.
