Deep blue!

I have never seen an Ivy-leaved Speedwell with flowers this deep blue. Are there any other species with blue anthers?

Blue Anthers

Just spotted this post so I looked through some of my Veronica images.
I appear to have many Veronica persica and filiformis images with blue anthers.

Veronica persica

As mentioned above, no ivy-leaved Veronica has such a flower color. Almost certainly Veronica persica

Veronica hederifolia ssp hederifolia

This one does have flowers this deep blue, contrary to statements above. V. persica is paler.
