Habit Foliage Flowers Seedlings
Persian speedwell (Veronica persica) flowers have 4 petals, and
are purple to blue, fading to white near the center.
Flowers remain closed during cloudy or dark conditions.
On the first sunny day (doesn't occur often in OR), flowers open up and
create a lovely carpet of blue.
Distinct darker blue stripes radiate out from the center of the flower.
With magnification, you can see 2 stamens (male flower parts) and 1
style (female flower parts).
