Deadheading veronica

B3B3 Posts: 25,231
I've  been deadheading  my veronica  and I've  noticed what appears  to be flower buds above the seed heads and growing out of badly deadheaded  blooms.
Does this mean I  don't  really  need to deadhead?

    I would cut those dead heads of as they don’t look very nice.
    Some only grow from cuttings with infertile seeds, which means they won’t need to be cut of to produce new flowers, depends which one you have.

    I'm usually a bit more particular with the deadheading and smaller blooms shoot from the sides so ive never noticed this before. There's a small self seeder in the back garden which must have come from my compost so I assume it's not infertile
