You've just reminded me! I want to find a Hebe I had in my last garden. It was called Strawberries and Cream I think. Similar colours but a bigger leaf.

The hebe you sent me last year is growing really well. I think I shall have flowers on it this summer. It's a very tough little plant Shirley. Most of my Hebes have taken a real hit this winter, but not that one! :)))

I am so pleased it's thriving in your garden ... the one with pale lilac flowers if I remember correctly. I am currently enjoying the sunshine and potting up the Dahlia tubers saved over Winter ... hopefully lots of colour in the Summer pots. :o)

Neat final size, pretty leaves. Need to be in the right place at the right time for these bargains.

It does look similar to Silver Dollar,Shirley..both mine are a lovely pink just now..but sadly,I've never seen a white flower on since I bought them about three years ago,as it said on the label...Anyway,I still love them :o) looks like we have both been lucky with the clearance bench this week :o)
