Graham Stuart Thomas referred to the Parahebes as ‘little treasures’, and once you get to know this charming New Zealand native you’ll see why. Forming an easygoing, dense semishrubby plant, princely pairs of serrated deep green leaves, polished and narrow, extend from reddish stems that respond well to pruning. Unbelievably profuse and long blooming, the tiny, white cupped flowers are a study in delicacy, each with a green eye and magenta ring, while populating loosely arranged terminal clusters.
Roses, Geranium ‘Orion’ and Hydrangea ‘Enziandom’ spill over an unshorn evergreen hedge of Parahebe linifolia in our garden for a flowery summer time gala.
Blooms June – October.
