One of our absolute favorite Hebes, Quicksilver Hebe makes an excellent drought tolerant, evergreen ground cover. It is prized for its beautiful silvery blue compact foliage and profuse displays of purple flowers. The wiry black stems contrast beautifully with the glaucous blue leaves. A real winner for the parking strip or xeriscape garden!
