The Q&A Archives: Veronica Speedwell

Question: Should the flower spikes be cut back once they are through flowering? If so, how far back should they be cut and will this encourage more flowering?

Answer: Veronica Speedwell will bloom continuously for 6-8 weeks without any deadheading. The flower spikes will bend down naturally and you won't notice the spent flowers because there will be new flower spikes and flowers developing all summer. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy your plants!
