We have long grown Hebe mckeanii (also called 'McKeanii') in our garden but have never been able to establish its provenance. After reading Lawrie Metcalf's book "Hebes" we suspect that what we have been growing is really 'Emerald Gem' which is a natural cross found in the wild by A.W. McKean. Thanks to him we have this low, rounded evergreen shrub that has small, bright, somewhat yellow green foliage. A Great Plant Picks selection.
