- Hebe diosmifolia Wairua Beauty - Unusual flower shape - heliotrope mauve flowers - bright green glossy leaves - excellent in a container
Hebe diosmifolia Wairua Beauty is a compact multi-branched shrub which forms a tidy mound of pale lime green leaves which are small and narrow. In June and July (for 4 weeks) a mass of heliotrope mauve flowers are produced in corymbs at the ends of shoots, these are larger than the species. The plant was discovered as a sport of the species in Wairua in New Zealand hence the name.
Hebe diosmifolia Wairua Beauty is superb in a pot placed where the stunning and unusual flowers can be appreciated. May need some Winter protection in colder areas.
