Veronica ‘Aztec Gold’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


Brilliant gold foliage spreads in dense mats and is complemented by rich blue flowers in May. This versatile groundcover works well in mixed containers, hanging baskets, over walls, etc. Great to contrast with our top selling black leaved Heuchera 'Obsidian'. Foliage goes chartreuse in partial shade, which is still very nice!
