Veronica gentianoides

Veronica gentianoides


The Veronica is still looking good.

A great plant and dead easy from seed.

By the way, the same goes for the geums behind them in the photo and the delphiniums and oriental poppies that have just gone into my May album - all dead easy from seed!

People should sow more seeds!

Did the Whitebush seeds I gave you do any good?

Hmmm! My veronicas are not anywhere near flowering yet.....

Definitly will be trying more from seed from now on.

Thanks, Jacinta.

Fran, do you mean the Veronicastrum? I think I have two seedlings. Did yours come back after the winter?

fran m fran m 27 May 2011 22:34:52

Rachel, yes I do. Will I ever stop mixing plants up. Veronicastrum is struggling but there is hope, and Bloom is next week, that's where I got it ;-))

Great, Tina :)

Did I give you them, Hazel? Not all mine have flowered this year either.

Rachel - you gave me one when we met in Altamont and it is alive but not doing much! I got some more at Birr and they are a bit more advanced. I've never grown them before so I'm waiting with bated breath to see what happens next!
