Hebe 'Greensleeves' has been one of the toughtest of hebes in our collection. We have it planted on a south-facing hillside where it receives all-day sun and regular water. It has flourished in this setting, developing into an upright evergreen shrub. The olive-green leaves are tightly adpressed to the stems in a whipcord fashion. In late spring, the white flowers form on the ends of the stems seemingly within the body of the shrub, not above it. According to the book Hebes by Lawrie Metcalf, 'Greensleeves' was found as a seedling of Hebe ochracea in 1973 and introduced by Graham Hutchins in 1997.
