Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’ is an upright, evergreen shrub, which grows to about 30 in (75 cm) high and wide in 4 years. The spear-shaped leaves are grey-green with a cream margin, up to 1.5 in (4 cm) long, and turn deep red in winter and spring. Spikes of mauve flowers can be produced on older plants in summer, although it may prove to be shy flowering. Hardy to –5°C.
This recently introduced hebe cultivar requires a sheltered site, in full sun and well drained soil. It is protected by EU Plant Variety Rights, PVR No 11472.
