It is the unusual olive green to gold color of the scale-like leaves that makes this evergreen shrub so distinct. The whipcord foliage is arranged in cupressus-like sprays of stems which grow increasingly shorter toward the terminal. Occasionally stems are branched or forked. Short flowering spikes appear at the ends of older wood so that the flowers bloom within the shrub, not above it. In coastal areas, this can become a sizeable shrub but here in our inland garden, Hebe 'James Stirling' is slow to grow.
