The Germander Speedwell (Veronica chamaedrys) is a species of Veronica, native to Europe and northern Asia. It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 25 cm tall, with hairy stems and leaves. The flowers are blue, with a four-lobed corolla. The form of the leaves are similar to white deadnettle. It can grow to 25 cm tall, but is normally about 12 cm tall.

The blossoms of this plant wilt very quickly upon picking, which has given it the ironic name "Maennertreu", or "men's faithfulness" in German.

The plant is also called Bird's eye, or Bird's-eye Speedwell.
