Bright blue flower with a white eye, also known as Bird’s-eye Speedwell. Leaves have jagged or toothed edges. Becomes low growing and dense when in the lawn compared to a lanky growth habit in the borders.
Tiny pink or mauve flower, also known as Round-leaved Speedwell. Has a similar growth habit to Germander Speedwell.
These plants spread from cuttings so most occurrences in the lawn are due to mulch mowing, raking, scarifying or mowing in general where some plant material is left behind. Therefore, removing all mowings and any plants from the borders is a very good idea.
