Hebe pimeleoides ‘Quicksilver’
at Digging Dog

Hebe

Once you get to know this eternally appealing genus, it is easy to see why it was named after the Greek goddess Hebe who symbolized youth and immortality. With trim, tidy habits that convey a chipper attitude, our evergreen selections hail from New Zealand, serving up an irresistible dose of small dapper leaves aligned in alternating pairs all year long, and from summer until fall slender tapered racemes borne at foliar axils. Indispensable for seashore gardens, these former members of the Veronica genus make top-notch container plants in colder climates, appreciate a light spring shearing and can handle wind, some drought and sunshine galore.

Hebe pimeleoides ‘Quicksilver’ full sun

Indigenous to New Zealand, this sprawling, easy-to-grow evergreen shrublet is full of charm. Prized by florists, its smooth, arching and lengthy black stems seem to sparkle with small, silvery blue-green leaves that are neatly arranged in closely set, opposite pairs. Featuring a wiry demeanor, unique colors, and in summertime, pale lilac flowers, ‘Quicksilver’ adds an inspired contrast to Thymus ‘Pink Chintz’ and Miscanthus ‘Little Kitten’.

Size: 12" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.
