Hebe ‘Red Edge’ photographed at The Quinta Arboretum, Swettenham, Cheshire, UK

Hebe ‘Red Edge’ AGM forms a tight dome of grey-green, evergreen foliage 24 in (60 cm) or more high. The leaves are grey-green, with red margins, 0.8 in (2 cm) long; in winter they take on a reddish tint. Pale lilac flowers in early summer. A hebe hardy in the UK.

It is probably a cross between Hebe albicans and Hebe pimeleoides and is frequently used in landscaping schemes in the UK, and always looks good. There are several variegated forms available, see Hebe ‘Silver Dollar’.
