It is lovely....

Beautiful colour.

I love this colour :-))))))))))))))))))))))
What will its flowering time be and what are its dimensions ?

10 Dec, 2009

 

Suits you, Louise - whether it fits or not! LOL

10 Dec, 2009

 

:-))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

The label says it's compact - up to 3' x 3' max. Nice one? ;-)))

Yes, you know i'm not a big fan of Hebes though.
If it provided this colour throughout the winter i'd consider it though, summer colours through the winter appeal to me.

10 Dec, 2009

 

I have other Hebes (not this colour) that flower on and on into the winter. I'm hoping that 'Louise' will do the same!

(Will you, please?????) lol.

10 Dec, 2009

 

LOL
What are the colours that flower through the winter, please ?

10 Dec, 2009

 

Pale mauve and purple! :-)))

10 Dec, 2009

 

Hmm, i think the brighter colours would be better for me, if this one flowers right through until spring i might seriously consider it.
I didn't realise that Hebes 'would' flower throughout the winter.

10 Dec, 2009

 

It would stop flowering if the weather turned too cold. The others do!

10 Dec, 2009

 

.... and then it'd perk up again, or be finished ?

10 Dec, 2009

 

They take a break and start flowering again in the late spring, usually, with an odd flower or two in between, just to be tantalising! LOL.

10 Dec, 2009

 

Ahh, i'll give it a miss then. I'd only get one if it was definately continuous.

10 Dec, 2009

 

Well, is there any shrub that blooms continuously? The poor things do need a rest occasionally! I can hear them saying - 'Awww, give us a break!' LOL.

I do reckon my Hebes to be the longest flowering shrubs I have, seriously, apart from Viburnum tinus.

your a gal who just cant say .....'no more plants'

stunning but have you a pot to put it in? thats still a no isnt it :o)

10 Dec, 2009

 

Snap Barbara!! They're a real beauty especially for December...loads to come on mine...:o)

12 Dec, 2009

 

I am a little worried about her, Janey - the Hebe website says she may not be hardy! Did yours come through the winter OK??

12 Dec, 2009

 

oh this is just beautiful color thanks for adding it to the list of beauties

13 Dec, 2009

 

It is, isn't it, Lujean! :-)

13 Dec, 2009

 

I understand completely, Barbara. what a wonderful colour and form...great plant... hope it's hardy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Lori my friend! Where have you been hiding? Thank you - and I send Christmas Greetings to you too! :-)))
