Throughout the last many winters, our hebe collection has been down-sized to the truly hardy. Among the stalwarts that have stood this test of nature, we include Hebe imbricata. It's name refers to the over-lapping, evergreen, scale-like leaves that cover its stems. These leaves are an attractive shade of yellow green that makes the shrub stand out in the green border. This species has remained quite small in our garden although we have read that it can reach close to 2 feet in height. The small white flowers have magenta anthers, a detail for the close observer.
