And thank you, Ken Moore!

After reading Ken Moore’s article about Spiderworts (see previous posting), I came across the identity of those tiny striped flowers from Karen’s garden. The plant is a Speedwell. Thank you, Mr. Moore!

Here is the original posting and photo below:

Karen and I both bought this plant at Merrifield Garden Center several years ago, but neither of us remember what it is! The petals are really unusual—all the petals have stripes on them, but they seem to graduate to one intensely colored petal where the stripes appear to thicken. The blooms are quite tiny—barely 1/2″ in diameter. Identity unknown—anyone?
