This is a favorite hebe of Andy Stockton who works here at the nursery and has become a great fan of hebes. He has found this to be easy and winter hardy here in the Pacific Northwest. It is a seedling of Hebe 'Youngii' found at Boughton House, Northhamptonshire, England in the 1970's. 'Walter Buccleugh' is named for the 8th Duke of Buccleugh. In habit, the shrub is upright. Its young stems are purple and are attractive with the lance-shaped green leaves which have reddish margins. They also complement the red purple flowers.
