Hebe loganioides

This small shrub was first found on the South Island of New Zealand in 1869 by John Francis Armstrong. It has the tiniest leaves of any hebe we grow. Narrow, one-eighth-inch long golden green leaves are tightly clasped to the stem in a whipcord pattern near the ends of the stems. Lower on the stems, the leaves overlap less densely. During the winter, the green turns bronze. Hebe loganioides has not bloomed for us but it is said to have comparatively large flowers for a whipcord hebe. The awkward specific name apparently comes from its comparison to a now extinct plant, Logania depressa. Our measurements come from a specimen grown in Edinburgh, Scotland.
