The form of Hebe vernicosa that we grow in our gardens is compact and creates tight, radiant mounds with glossy, evergreen leaves. Although there are taller selections of this species that branch out laterally, our form is quite upright in habit. Its compact size makes it ideal for a smaller garden. According to Lawrie Metcalf in his book Hebes, the meaning of the species name is "polished" and that describes the sheen of the tiny foliage nicely. Clusters of small flowers appear near the terminals of the stems in late spring. Hebe vernicosa has proven hardy for us for the last three winters.
