This whipcord hebe really glows. The tiny yellow green leaves are adpressed tightly against the stem. Near the stem tip, however, the young leaves become yellow ochre in contrast with the lower, more yellow leaves. Hebe armstrongii is named after one of the explorers who discovered it along the Rangitata River on the South Island of New Zealand in 1869. In habit, this behaves like a dwarf conifer, upright but mounding. The flower spikes are small and sparse. It is the foliage that steals the show.
