Hebe - not too sure of the variety, can anyone help?

Isle of Wight, United Kingdom Gb

This is a Hebe, although it does have the appearance of a conifer. It has these beautiful little flowers on the ends of the leaves.




hi Andrea, i don't have a picture, but it sounds like H.epacridea, or H. 'Boughton Dome' i have found referenfce to them in my rock plant book, and this is what it says: H. epacridea: Stems are clothed with scale-like leaves and whipcord branches bear white fragrant flowers in July. H. 'Boughton Dome' is another Whipcord Hebe, grown for its conier-like appearance, but there is no mention of flowers. you could try googling them see if anything comes up. hope this helps.

This one is in the Botanical Gardens again and it is in flower. If you look at the pictures I uploaded you will see the fully grown one. Unfortunately the hebes I planted which look like this are not in flower at the moment
