It is Veronica (common name Speedwell)

Georgia Blue Speedwell (Veronica peduncularis 'Georgia Blue')

In February (2/26/12) I noticed that this plant was starting to flower. I'd left it planted in a hanging basket container with coconut husk lining. I figured it was a goner, but despite being left above ground all winter, it is now blooming profusely. At the time I couldn't recall the name, but today I managed to find the plant tags I'd saved from last summer and was able to identify it.

My goal this year is to start the habit of photographing the plant and the plant tag  when I first bring them home, so I can file them in a more organized way and hopefully find a name when I need one.
