Hebe ‘Turkish Delight’
Striped and purple-leafed varieties of hebe abound in Europe so why are so few of them available here in their rightful home of New Zealand? Beats me. ‘Turkish Delight’ is a natural sport from the not-quiteso-purple but reliable cultivar ‘Mrs Winder’. It popped up in the Waikato in 2002 and turns a lovely blackish colour in the winter. The dainty summer flowers are mauve-blue.
