Veronica gentianoides question.
I've been growing a patch of this for a few years now. The palest blue flowers ever. It's lovely. And the ground cover of leaves is healthy.
I would just like to know if I can do anything to extend the flowering season. Flowers are out and over very quickly .



Should be flowering from June to September, do you cut off the flowers as they are dying?

Yes, I do cut the heads, but they just don't come back again.

I've grown this, and it flowers usually around May, sometimes early June, with one flush for up to about 4 weeks, then it's done. Listed by the RHS as flowering in early summer. You could add a Veronica spicata nearby, which starts flowering more or less as V. gentianoides ends (midsummer)
