I'll have a stab, and say 'Nicola's Blush'...possible that the flowers may be a bit short for that variety though, so can't be sure.

some of the flower clusters are quite rounded rather than elongated like the one shown. does that change the decision? they are less than 2" long too.

I guess not Seaburngirl, the flowers of 'Nicola's Blush' would generally be more elongated rather than rounded.

That's very pretty!

I have that Hebe I call 'my favourite'. I trawled all through the Hebe Society website, which has photos. I think mine is 'Wiri Charm'. It's a good clear site - why not see if BS's suggestion is correct?

Looks like "Great Orme" to me

Its a beauty, whichever Hebe it is..:>)

No, not Great Orme, got it downstairs, nothing like it, has narrower, longer flowers, narrower leaves, and its currently 8 feet high and wide. Could be Nicola's Blush, but there are now so many hybrids, hard to say.

growing conditions can make a remarkable difference. At first I thought the leaves were too rounded to be GO but if you look closely they do seem to be longer and narrower in parts.GO has brownish stems as opposed to green but i cannot see them clearly enough here.

Can't get away from that conical flower shape though - Great Orme much narrower and longer flowers

PS I have just had a look on the Hebe Society website and GO flowers till october so could still be in flower now. Have a look at the site it talks about leaves being opposite on the stem and stuff which can jhelp narrow your search. Can you remember where you bought it they may be able to help.

i didnt buy it. i took a piece from one of the shrubs in the grounds where i work. I asked the groundsman and he said 'why its a pink hebe lass'!
so he wasnt any help.

How do I say thanks?
