Hebe buxifolia ‘Patty’s Purple’ is a compact rounded evergreen shrub forming a mound of very small, deep green leaves. Resembling boxwood, the foliage densely covers the striking wine red stems. In summer, pretty spikes of lavender-purple flowers appear at the tips of the branches. They fade to white as they mature, creating a bicolor effect. Fast-growing, Hebe buxifolia ‘Patty’s Purple’ is a great choice as a specimen plant, a low hedge or the mixed border. Great in a seaside environment.
