This is a fantastic new hebe with short spikes of pink flowers and a low-growing, groundcovering habit. The foliage is rich dark green but flushed with rich burgundy when young. The plant is dense, spreads to three feet wide while only rising to one foot tall, and is extremely useful for interesting plant combinations in the garden and in containers. Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Prune lightly to shape.
Sparse grassland or stony places in the drier mountains of Marlborough and Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand.
