Veronica (speedwell) keeps blooming all summer for me, if I diligently deadhead spent flowerheads.

The following pics are from July...

I love that pink. Veronicas are really nice plants. I hacked mine back after they finished the first flush and they promptly grew and flowered and were twice as big. I just looked at them and they've gotten floppy and opened up in the center. Maybe next year I'll remember to deadhead them instead.

Thanks, I like the pink too. In fact, that particular clump has spread so much, I could probably divide it into four clumps. It's a nice short variety that looks good at the front of the garden. The blue spicata is very tall, but doesn't need staking.

I've never seen pink Verbena before, only blue. In fact, mine reseeded a couple of years before it died out. Very pretty!
