This has the smallest flowers of any of the speedwells, no more than 5–6 m across. Their color, deep violet-blue, a little darker than the flowers of Persian Speedwell (Veronica persica). The flowers appear nested in the upper leaves, having very short pedicels which are only 0.5–2 mm long compared to the 15–30 mm long pedicels found on the Persian Speedwell. The sepals are in two pairs, the outer longer than the inner. The fruits are distinctly notched and hairy on the margins. The leaves at the base of the stem are triangular to ovate, with slightly serrate or crenate margins. The upper leaves are narrower than those found on Persian Speedwell. The whole plant is hairy and occasionally glandular.
