Veronica polita Fries ??

A common weed in gardens.

I do not think so as per Veronica polita subsp. polita

What are the species listed in your area?


That is the list of Nepal and not of the posted area.

There no such list available for Kathmandu valley. By the way I have

checked all sp. listed in efn but could not match.

Open flowers may solve this mystery.

So difficult to wait for flowering ! 10 February 2021!

5 high resolution images.

Closest I can go as per comparative images is Veronica capitata Royle ex Benth. as per images and details herein.

But the Checklist of Nepal does not show its distribution.

Flower looks too small !

Veronica javanica Blume !

Yes, you appears to be right as per GBIF (specimen) and as per
Malwi Flora
