We received Hebe 'Sapphire' from the Elizabeth C. Miller Botanic Garden in Seattle. It was one of their selections after Hebe trials at the North Willamette Experiment Station. Although it does not turn nearly as red as Hebe 'Caledonia' during the winter, it has proven more reliable in our late frosts. Each leaf has a red central bar and the new stems are red as well, giving this a ruddy glow during the cold season but diminishing in vividness in the summer. The three-inch bloom spikes are very numerous.
