Germander shares her name with the wildflower Germander Speedwell (scientific name Veronica chamaedrys), this species being probably the boldest and brightest of UK-occurring Speedwells.

While found in many of the same habitats and sharing the same blue hue, Germander (Homo sapiens speedwelli) is easily distinguished from her botanical counterpart by her greater length of stem and many layers of fine black petals (albeit in the winter months frequently obscured by millinery).

Spoken-worder, wayward walker,
nomenclature collector and terminology assembler

Germander Speedwell's principal pursuit is to collect curious language from odd or arcane sources, and arrange it into tongue-twisting spoken word pieces that are packed with plosives, littered with alliteration, saturated with assonance and riddled with rhythm. Germander also dabbles in tangents of geographical exploration, architectural decoration, tidal observation, floral identification and nautical notation.
