Spike speedwell is easily grown in average, medium-moisture, well-drained soil. Rich organic matter can be added to the soil to improve overall performance.


This perennial grows best in full sun (> 6 hours sun) or part sun (4-6 hours sun), with improved flower performance in full sun.


Spike speedwell has fairly average water needs. The best performance occurs with consistent, regular moisture and sharp soil drainage (particularly in winter).


Feed your spike speedwell plants with a general-purpose slow-release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.


Cut back to basal growth in late autumn.

Maintenance & Pruning:

Removing faded blooms encourages the flower spires to rebloom. Cutting back faded spikes to the new growth at their base improves their appearance.

Great flowers and plants

I had a few plants that didn't make it and Great Plants offer a 60 refund. I contacted CSR and without hesitation, they replaced my plants. They're growing and thriving and I couldn't be happier. I will only buy from Great Garden Plants.

Disappointed in both the sensational lavender and praire fountain.planted in ideal locations with every opportunity to thrive, but still waiting. Lavender is dying off and the grass has not grown at all. The weather has been ideal.

Is not doing well.

Thought it was full hot sun. But it is just not growing. It's not dead so maybe I can still move it.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. This speedwell is a full sun plant and will flower best in conditions of 6+ hours of sunlight a day. We've been noticing a lot of gardeners not keeping their plants well watered. We recommend checking the soil daily. If the plant becomes stressed from too little, or too much, water, it can severely limit root growth. Soil should be nicely moist but never wet or soggy nor powdery and dry. All newly planted shrubs, trees, and perennials need regular watering for their first season. Pay particular attention during hot, dry weather.

While you may not see the plant growing above ground, a lot is happening below the surface. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development.

Happy Gardening!
