Thanks for posting these Veronica plants.
I have also seen a few at the Golden Gate Park and around.
Let me check if I have posted them before.

If not, will do.

Posting a few Veronica Species seen at the Golden Gate Park.
Had missed posting earlier.
I was reminded after seeing your posts.
During my visit in Sept, 2014.

I hope Veronica X fransiscana


Veronica x franciscana correct spellings

Another Veronica from the park.

There are two more, probably identified.
Will post those tomorrow since only three posts per day.

I think Veronica x franciscana only

This is similar to the one you have posted from Summerwinds Nursery.

Here are a few more from the park.


Hard to choose from Veronica x franciscana (4 rows of leaves) and V. speciosa.


I find these closer to images at Veronica × franciscana Eastw. from California-GS04112020-3
