Answer: The upright growing varieties of veronica grown as perennials do not spread the way the weed commonly known as veronica spreads. Some of the named spreading varieties (Veronica repens) sold as ornamental perennials will spread in the garden, but not at the same lightning speed. Veronica "Goodness Grows" is an exceptionally well behaved and desirable perennial plant! In my experience it does not spread at all beyond its mature size.
