Hebe armstrongii

Hebe armstrongii photographed at Great Dixter, East Sussex, UK

Hebe armstrongii is an erect growing whipcord, growing to 2 ft (60 cm) high, with slender upright branches. The flowers are white, and are in terminal spikes, early summer – although it tends to be shy-flowering.

This hebe was found by J F Armstrong in 1869, near the source of the Rangitata River, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand. Hebe armstrongii is closely related to Hebe annulata and Hebe salicornioides.
