It looks like a perennial called Veronica spicata,Â possibly 'Darwin Blue' or 'Royal Candles'.Â I have a different Veronica spicataÂ cultivar 'Blue Bouquet' in my garden and I love it.Â It performs very very in my area and is an attractive backdrop for the soft pink ground cover rose in my garden.Â Veronica is also known as Speedwell and a fantastic summer bloomer.
