According to Lawrie Metcalf in his monograph on Hebes, this was found at Inverey Nursery in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1974. He speculates that this is a cross between Hebe 'Glauca-caerulea' and H. amplixicaulis f. hirta. In our garden, this forms a small, evergreen shrublet with dark, woolly branchlets. The bluish leaves are about 1/2-inch long and 1/4-inch wide and have yellow margins. Its parentage makes it suitable as a groundcover in a low water garden or in a rock garden.

Late spring and summer; sometimes autumn.  4 in. x 30 in.
