sorry i do not know name :-( but i love this plant...very nice.

Do you think it's the same as yours Shirley?

Karen, I wondered that too! Have been comparing pics and I think the leaves on this one are narrower than those on mine. Gralew's is fabulous, isn't it?

As there are so many Hebes, I shan't bother to look through images!

No, quite right Shirley. If it was the same as yours, you'd know!

It's a very nice Hebe no matter what it's name may be.

Very nice,Gralew..does it get quite big? as I'm sure I had a similar one at my last house..and made it part of a hedge..sorry,no name,as I pinched a bit for a cutting ! not from someones garden,as it was growing as part of a hedgerow..not very helpful ,I know..maybe yours is a smaller variety..

Karen... Yes it's been like this since about the middle of Dec, have another one,same plant that flowered in the summer.Was amazed at the different flowering seasons for the same species.In different parts of the border,perhaps thats the answer!
Shirley... I looked at yours, and you're right, the leaves are narrower than mine.Would you like some cuttings when possible.?
Sandra, think it might grow quite big,will try to keep small if possible.They tend to get very woody, if left.
Hb.. I agree.
Thanks all for comments.Like you say too many to look through to try and name!

Oh my goodness thats amazing that its flowering like this in February!!!!, lovely.
I had several but lost most during those cold winters only lilacy one I remember the name of was 'Midsummer Beauty' which was huge and remarkable started to grow back last year from just a stump which I hadn't got round to digging out,its now a nice size plant.
I have several flowers on a ceonothus!!!

Such a pretty one and such a surprise to see it in the winter.
Lovely.

I like Hebe's - have always found them easy to take cuttings of! I've got a lilac plant (unknown variety) that sometimes provides cuttings that have lilac flowers and sometimes white flowers...!

Thanks for the nice comments ladies!
Petal...Double joy for you then.Yes they are easy, I've got two more cuttings in the border, thought they might have been washed away, but no...they're growing slow but sure!!
