Germanders Speedwell

Germanders Speedwell (Veronica chamaedrys)has flowers in short spikes up the stems not solitary ones.

I don't think we can really tell from this observation, as we can't see enough of the specimen.

Germander Speedwell in my

Germander Speedwell in my experience is more of an upright growing perennial forming loose tufts amongst rank grasses except when mown/grazed, rather than a more prostrate annual/short lived perennial growing in arable fields. Seed head too small other than to show that it was a solitary flower and not a spikelet.

Thanks, that one does show the paler petal of V.persica so I'm convinced now!
