Veronica repens is hardy and carefree here... though who knows how it will do where you live, Cohan.

I lost my V. repens too, but from it being overgrown by bigger neighbours. I was very fond of it though and will replace when I see another. Not around here lately. Mine was very palest blue, not white, what I would call ice blue. It did set seed because it turned up occasionally in a gravel path.

thanks for the input on the veronical, lori, lesley and simon..i have two plants, one i stuck in the big pot i had semps in last year---only one of the three survived, but its doing very well, i added some other semps and sedum bits; so suvival of that one is definitely iffy...
another pot i will plant in the ground when i get a spot ready..i will check for seeds, its been blooming for some time already..

For those that received my Shortia uniflora seed please note. Usually this Shortia sprouts within 2-3 weeks.  However I surface sowed mine on the 17th of July in a plastic bag under lights and they just started sprouting in the past 2 weeks.  So don't give up hope.
