The Veronica is a flowering plant also known as the Speedwell. Its colors range from blue to white, but this one is a light shade of magenta. The top of the flower and the leaves are a bright green color. The flower and stem are both thin, the stem is also fuzzy.

This variety is usually in pairs or groups of three. Its height ranges from 20-30 centimeters.

The Veronica blooms all year long and comes back every year. This particular species originated in Europe. It sits across from the gazebo and next to the Juniper bush.
