Spiked speedwell has beautiful tall blue flower spikes. It is a real favourite, with long lasting flowers and is beautiful in a sunny cottage garden border. In addition, the leaves are covered in silver hairs, giving a lovely contrast to the deep blue flower spikes. Furthermore, it will grow in most soils providing the site is well drained.
Spiked speedwell is perfect for pollinators and loved by bees in particular, so ideal for a wildlife area.
In the UK, it is the county flower of Montgomeryshire
