Hebe ‘Jane Holden’

Hebe ‘Jane Holden’ is an erect, well-branched, evergreen shrub growing to a height of 4 ft (1.2 m) or more. The shiny dark green, spear-shaped leaves are 3 in (7.5 cm) long, and 1 in (2.5 cm) wide with a prominent reddish midrib. The flowers are deep pink and are notable for their length, often up to 10 in, 25 cm including peduncle; summer.

This hebe cultivar, thought to be a cross between Hebe ‘Great Orme’ and Hebe ‘Midsummer Beauty’, originated in the garden of Mrs Jane Holden at Idleigh in Kent in the mid–1970’s. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.
