Could be Hebe 'Eveline', but there are now so many new hybrids, it's hard to be sure.

Think I'd assume it's a slightly less than hardy one - hebes sold without names at this time of year often aren't terribly hardy ones.

probably why they were so cheap
£1.99 each!!

aah well if it makes it then good oh
if not then I tried

.. or it could be Great Orme, that's a good old reliable one. Cuttings take quite well from these.

p.s. this one is hardier than the variegated one.

Defo not Great Orme - leaves aren't narrow enough.

Sad to say all these Hebes with relatively large leaves tend to suffer in Winter, not just from frost but from our dull cold climate . They come from New Zealand and probably miss the fresher air .. Small leaved ones are mostly OK except the lovely early flowering 'Litttle Marie', which needs slight winter shelter . and is worth it.

Il bring them both into the greenhouse for the cold season, thought it had started yesterday but its gorgeous sunshine this morning
