Hebe ‘Divergens’

Hebe ‘Divergens’ forms a low, grey, rounded mound of about 24 in (60 cm) high. The evergreen leaves are grey, and oval shaped, 1 in (25 mm) long. The white flowers, in short spikes, are seen in summer. This plant is hardy in the UK, and appears to be a hybrid, or form, of Hebe albicans.

A hebe of this name was found near the south coast of Westland, South Island, New Zealand. It was described by T F Cheeseman, who considered it be a species, although it is now thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid, possibly Hebe elliptica × Hebe gracillima.
