Hebe ‘Mrs Winder’

Hebe ‘Mrs Winder’ photographed at a garden in Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK, December 2007

Hebe ‘Mrs Winder’ forms an evergreen mound of dark foliage up to 40 in (1 m) high. The shiny green leaves are up to 1.8 in (4.5 cm) long, and have reddish-purple edges. The leaves diverge early so a proper leaf bud is not formed. Flowers are rarely seen, mauve, autumn. A hebe hardy in the UK.

This robust hebe cultivar has been in UK gardens for a long time, although its origins are unknown. There are a number of hebes with similar appearance that flower in summer.
