Veronica beccabunga

UK Native: Yes

Height: Short

Planting Zone: 1 - 2

An old favourite British native pond plant, Brooklime is suitable for any pond. It has a rafting habit, small round green leaves are borne on creeping stems and pretty little blue flowers are produced in summer. It is ideal for covering the edges of containers or planting in waterfalls. In the pond margins it creeps out in a raft providing hiding places for baby fish and habitat for pond creatures. Plant in a small or medium container on its own or with other plants. Use aquatic soil covered with pea gravel and place on the marginal shelf.
