Hebe topiaria

Hebe topiaria photographed at The Quinta Arboretum, Swettenham, Cheshire, UK

Hebe topiaria forms a tight mound of grey-green, evergreen foliage, 40 in (1 m) high, and 80 in (2 m) wide. This shrub looks like it has just been clipped over, hence its name. The leaves are a half inch (1.2 cm) long. White flowers in June and July. A hebe hardy in the UK.

Hebe topiaria grows wild in the Nelson mountains, to the north of the South Island, New Zealand. There is some confusion between Hebe pinguifolia ‘Sutherlandii’ and this hebe.
