Found on the South Island of New Zealand at fairly high, exposed sites, Hebe buchananii forms a low dense mounded shrub. The somewhat blue cast to its leaves is often accented by a pencil-thin edge of red around them. In our gardens this blooms profusely, more or less covering itself in tiny white flowers. The species name of this evergreen shrub honors John Buchanan (1819-1898), a botanist and artist who was part of an early geological survey on the island.
