Hebe ‘Monica’ photographed by Gordon Smith at his garden, Surrey, UK

Hebe ‘Monica’ is an erect, evergreen, bushy shrub, growing to 20 in (50 cm) high. The green leaves are spear-shaped, 0.6 in (1.5 cm) long and 0.24 in (6 mm) wide. The flowers are pinkish purple, summer. This hebe is hardy in the UK.

This hebe cultivar is a seedling from Hebe pimeleiodes var glauco-caerulea and was raised by Graham Hutchins of County Park Nurseries, Hornchurch, Essex, UK, and named after a friend, Monica Bate. It seems to be susceptible to mildew.
