Thank you for your research on my hebe...much appreciated.
Amazing how it is in flower so late in the year....
...is that usual ? The hebe was a present to me a couple of months ago.

I suppose that the weathers been relatively mild that its just keeping flowering! Thats what all plants do to prolong and spread future generations esp as the conditions are obviously ideal for it!

I;ve got two on the balcony, both flowering away, TT, and I passed a window box I planted for a client with them in, and they're covered in flowers too.
