We are often asked for recommendations for low-mounding evergreen shrubs. Hebe recurva certainly would be a fine candidate for Pacific Northwest gardens. Its narrow, blue-gray, two-inch foliage recurves at the tips giving the arching branches a feathery appearance. In addition, the two-inch flower spikes are not upright but lateral mirroring the direction of the feathery branchlets. Within the white flowers, tiny purple anthers add a hint of color. Introduced from the South Island of New Zealand to England about 1923, it has remained a popular shrub for nearly a century.
