Comments:
Bird's-eye Speedwell (Veronica chamaedrys)- is one of the most widespread spring wildflowers. It is native of Eurasia and now it grows in the United States, and east Asia too. Although bird's-eye or speedwell is generally seen as a weed, many species in the genera are used and appreciated in gardens as a dense, colorful ground cover. Its tiny (8-11 mm wide) flowers have four petals of a sky-blue color with a white center. The flowers have outwards radiating, darker blue stripes. One of the petals is smaller and lighter than the others. Speedwell has serrated, triangular and hairy leaves. Bird's-eye speedwell occurs in lawns, gardens, cultivated fields and waste places.
